Behavior Interventions: Strategies for Educators, Counselors and Parents

15-minute focus
Brief Counseling Techniques that Work

In 15-minute Focus: Behavior Interventions, Amie Dean gives educators, counselors, and parents knowledge, strategies, and resources to teach children and teens how to communicate and make decisions to get their needs met in positive ways through behavior instruction and coaching.

If a child or teen is struggling to manage emotions or make good choices, it is rarely because they want to be “bad” or disrespectful. Most adults look for the “right” way or a magic formula that will transform challenging students, with no luck on finding one. Impacting behavioral change in another person is hard work, and every individual has unique needs and circumstances that should be considered. This book will help you view children’s words and actions as a lack of coping skills in the moment, or a skill deficit that can be taught or improved.

You’ll discover:

  • The function of behavior
  • Ways to rethink responses to behavior
  • De-escalating techniques
  • Steps to create a trauma-sensitive classroom
  • Principles for a positive classroom
  • Actionable strategies, curated resources, and more.

This guide will ask you to consider that there is likely a barrier keeping children from being successful, and it is our opportunity as the adults who care for them to help them through it.


Amie Dean has a passion for the “problem” students of the world. The students who are disrespectful, defiant, broken, and shut down have been a part of her every day for 29 years. As a former special education teacher, Amie spent many years teaching in classrooms with the most challenging students on campus and found a way to reach each and every one. She believes most teachers truly want to help these students — want to believe in them — but are not trained on HOW to do it. This has become Amie’s new personal mission — to help teachers implement positive, practical strategies in their classrooms to save our most challenging students — and themselves. Book Amie for your school, your district, or your conference so she can teach your teachers how to:

Teach Hard. Love Harder.

"Amie, I just had to let you know what a huge success your workshop was in Haywood County! I thought it was the best classroom management workshop I had ever attended (and I taught 35 years!), but the real value of it has been seen in the impact the strategies have had in the classrooms! As beginning teacher coordinator I asked our teachers to try at least one strategy, and then I'd wait 3 weeks and come to observe and see how things were going. I have been to almost all of the teachers now to?"
