Rick Curwin and Allen Mendler are the creators of the critically acclaimed training programs ′Discipline with Dignity′ and ′As Tough as Necessary′. These training programs have helped thousands of educators reduce aggressive behavior and minimize student hostility toward teachers and other students. In this sequel to the best-selling book ′As Tough as Necessary′, the authors focus on state-of-the-art motivational techniques that encourage students to change their behaviors. Using school and classroom rules that promote nonviolence as well as teaching and learning, the authors present positive role models for learners. Strategies include developing schoolwide values (′Our school is a place where we solve our problems peacefully′), practicing individual problem-solving (′Stop and calm down′), conflict resolution, anger management, stress reduction, renaming and reframing, finding spirituality from within, establishing safety, and more. This multidimensional approach has been shown to help thousands of students find safe alternatives to hurting themselves and others.
