Synopsis

The Educator's Guide to Solving Common Behavior Problems by Raymond J. Waller

This readable, humorous book presents the research-supported principles of positive behavioural management in a way that will appeal to teachers, school leaders, and other professionals who work with children and adolescents. The author presents key behaviour management strategies with references to literature, music, and popular culture that illustrate the humour in behavioural issues while providing an overview of the foundations of effective behaviour management. Each short chapter discusses a basic behavioural strategy or principle by using anecdotes and analogies and drawing parallels to real-life situations.

Reviews

Waller has written a wonderfully engaging book for teachers on how to influence child behavior using non-punitive and supportive ways. This book is thoroughly grounded in contemporary learning theory and infused with a twinkling sense of humor. -- Bruce A. Thyer, Professor of Social Work Waller's book will be useful for everyone who works with children: parents, school administrators, social workers, psychologists, and teachers. Waller approaches this topic in a readable style that makes the evidence-based content easily accessible. The book is well-organized and based on a bedrock of solid knowledge informed by practical experience. -- Carol Rippey Massat, Editor, School Social Work Journal A book like Waller's is needed to enlighten public school educators on the myriad of behavioral problems facing classroom teachers. This book is informative, practical, and sensible regarding the teacher-student relationship. -- George J. Banketas, Director This book reminds anyone who works with children that paying close attention to what is good and funny about children will go a long way in teaching them how to pay close attention to what is good and funny about learning and life. -- Susan Mortweet VanScoyoc, Behavioral Psychologist Anyone who works with children can use these powerful ideas and practical strategies laced with humor and wit. In clear, simple language, Waller presents approaches that increase the odds of solving behavior problems. -- Lois Zangara, Principal
