Teaching a Cognitive Behavioral Strategy to Manage Emotions Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy in an Educational Setting
Banks, Tachelle; Zionts, Paul
Intervention in School and Clinic, v44 n5 p307-313 2009
The academic and social challenges facing public schools are enormous. For example, the pressure to meet the demands of the current high-stakes testing environment and reach adequate yearly progress (AYP) goals has arguably never been greater (Luna & Turner, 2001; Sanders, 2003). The energy devoted to academics has supplanted the little time spent on the social, behavioral, and emotional needs of students. Yet, the need to create classroom environments that are safe for all students persists. This article presents a classroom mental health program that can be integrated with an academic curriculum and is designed both to address the emotional and behavioral problems of students and, more important, to give them the tools necessary to be able to prevent and manage them. (Contains 4 tables.)
