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.

From the Author

For Teachers, School Counselors, & Parents:

This book is about how we, the adults who love and support kids, can directly teach children/teens how to communicate and make decisions to get their needs met in positive ways. Every child deserves the opportunity to make mistakes, to be taught how to recover and benefit from mistakes, and to feel loved in spite of those mistakes. My goal is that, as parents and educators, you feel equipped with knowledge, skills, and resources to support and encourage the students or children you love.

If I can do it, I know you can too.

Teach hard. Love harder.
