Gone are the days when educating at-risk and troubled students are solely the responsibility of the Special Educator in a designated classroom. Presently, conflict exists in every classroom and each student's adversity comes in varying degrees - depression, defiance, violence, poverty, abuse, neglect, etc. For the staff member involved, theories from a textbook rarely provide the assistance and support their students need in effectively coping with the daily trials and tribulations. The sixth edition of Conflict in the Classroom provides this much-needed reality-based support. It's filled with practical strategies and advice from teachers, authors, and colleagues who have first-hand real life experience with the troubled student. Each meaningful chapter is woven together by the humanistic beliefs of psychoeducation, a concern for both the inner life and external behavior. It's a fusion of current and effective educational and mental health practices.
