Turtle Manual.
Schneider, Marlene; Robin, Arthur
This manual describes the Turtle Technique which was developed to help children with behavior problems control their own disruptive behavior. The technique differs from other behavior modification techniques in that it is based upon self-control rather than external control of disruptive behavior. The Turtle Technique first teaches the child how to respond when he feels threatened by uncontrollable emotions or external events which make him feel like lashing out. The learning of the turtle-like withdrawing response is then followed by relaxation training, generalization training and problem solving. Suggestions for maintenance of this system of self-control and other possible applications of it are provided in the concluding section. (SJL)
