Supportive Peer Groups: A Behavior Management Program for Children.
Virden, Tim
A supportive peer group management program for behaviorally disordered students is described. Children learn to confront one another about problems in a helpful, structured way. A generic problem list based on actual classroom experiences is composed of such elements as aggravation, hurting, lying, and disrespect for self and others. Children are helped to associate problems with their own experiences and are encouraged to discuss their problems in the group meeting. Suggestions are offered for setting up the meeting, conducting the problem session, focusing the meeting, and providing followup activities. Documentation of progress is considered, as are ways of encouraging parent involvement. (CL)
