Language: English  

Publisher: Maidenhead, Berkshire, England : Open University Press/McGraw-Hill Education, 2014

Summary:     Behaviour management in the classroom can be one of the most challenging aspects of teaching, but with the right approach it can be rewarding and enriching for both student and teacher. The new edition of this best selling textbook provides a systematic and thoroughly updated overview of the major theories and styles of discipline in schools. Drawing on the latest international research, the book outlines how teachers can develop a personal style in classroom management based on a sound understanding of theory. The emphasis is on proactive, authoritative approaches to discipline to engage students and facilitate the achievement of educational and social goals. The author demonstrates how it is within the power of schools and teachers to create the conditions under which even disadvantaged or disenchanted students strive to learn. Behaviour in Schools 3E is the essential handbook for all trainee teachers and NQTs and a valuable reference for more experienced teachers who want to develop their approach to complex behavioural challenges.

Language: English  

Publisher: Boston, MA : Cengage Learning, [2016]

Summary:     CASE DOCUMENTATION IN COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY teaches counselors and psychotherapists how to apply counseling theories in real-world settings. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to case documentation using four commonly used clinical forms: case conceptualization, clinical assessment, treatment plan, and progress note. These documents are uniquely designed to incorporate counseling theory and help new practitioners understand how to use theory in everyday practice. Case studies illustrate how to complete documentation using each of seven counseling models: psychodynamic, Adlerian, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, family systemic, solution-focused, and postmodern/feminist. Readers also learn about the evidence base for each theory as well as applications for specific diverse populations. Outcome-based pedagogy engages readers in an active learning process. The book's case documentation assignments-created using national standards for counseling, family therapy, psychology, and social work-empower readers to apply theoretical concepts and develop professional skills early in their training. With its practical overviews of theories, conceptualization, treatment planning, and documentation, this is a book that future mental health professionals will want to keep and use as a clinical reference manual for years to come.
