- Responding to a range of behaviors in formal and informal school settings
- Building a culture of tolerance and respect in the classroom
- Motivating disengaged students
- Communicating effectively with counseling professionals and parents

With an entirely new chapter on "Counseling Yourself," the book offers teachers surefire techniques for taking better care of themselves and the students in their schools.
