Painter, Genevieve; Corsini, Raymond J.
Based originally on the work of the Austrian psychiatrist, Alfred Adler, work which was further developed by Rudolph Dreikurs, this book Dreikurs, this book offers solutions to specific child discipline problems. Part I focuses on effective discipline in the home. These topics are covered: fundamentals of practical parenting; problems of routine living; problems of order and cooperation; interaction problems; special problems; building a cooperative family; and helping other families. Within these topics specific areas such as getting up, eating, keeping clean, chores, fighting in the car, dawdling, temper tantrums, and bad habits are discussed. Part II focuses on effective discipline in the school. These topics are covered: the teacher's dilemma; autocratic and democratic classroom atmospheres; building a democratic group; encouragement; goals of children's behaviors; learning through natural and logical consequences; centering; and Corsini 4-R schools. Within these topics specific areas such as moving toward democratic discipline; guidelines and ground rules for classroom discussion; class council; how to encourage; encouragement versus praise; how to correct mistaken goals; and new classroom dimensions are discussed. A general bibliography, as well as bibliographies on the topics of children's stories, guided imagery and mediation, relaxation, and energizers, are included. (ABL)
