This must-have resource will teach you how to use a simple 5-point scale to help students understand and control their emotional reactions to everyday events. This book shows how to break down a given behavior and, with the student's active participation, develop a scale that identifies the problem and suggests alternative, positive behaviors at each level of the scale.
