This widely used staff training DVD is designed for teachers and school counseling staff who work with students who display aggression, immaturity, withdrawal, or other problem behaviors. It illustrates the concepts and training procedures contained in the books Skillstreaming the Adolescent and Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child. The DVD contains scenes of actual training sessions that show Dr. Arnold Goldstein and Dr. Ellen McGinnis working with small groups of adolescents and elementary students. The students learn specific prosocial skills, such as resisting peer pressure, dealing with teasing, and responding to an accusation.
“Clearly shows how to teach prosocial skills to students. Well organized in an easy-to-follow manner.”
“Staff developers will be able to use the video as a guide, format, and/or tool for training concerning changing undesirable behavior.”
—Dianne Smith, Journal of Staff Development
“The video demonstrates a step-by-step procedure to help students learn how to change their behavior. Counselors and teachers are given a structured, but flexible plan for conducting a group of students in a positive learning experience.”
—Deborah R. Newman, Guidepost, American Counseling Association
