helping young people

Published in 2008, this book is designed to address children’s anger problems, academic performance challenges, and anxieties, as well as school safety issues, self-esteem, and more. The self-regulation training process is divided into three functional areas — physical, emotional, and cognitive — progressively moving children through skill areas in these three domains. Aimed at educators working with individuals, small groups, and classrooms from grades K-8, this resource includes individual strategies presented in step-by-step processes using lessons, activities, and reproducible worksheets. There is also a problem/strategy matrix tool to find strategies to target specific problem areas, and a companion CD.
