Objective and Outcomes: *

Participants in this online book study will:
• Pursue a common understanding of why school discipline is “broken” and how a new conceptual framework can facilitate shifts in a system that isn’t working for teachers, parents, and challenging kids.
• Familiarize themselves with the lagging skills and chronic unsolved problems that underlie challenging behavior, and some of the triggers that activate it.
• Reflect upon their own experience and professional practice, and that of their colleagues across the state, as they assess the contexts within which Collaborative Problem Solving (Plan B) may be applied in their schools and the extent to which Plan A and Plan C characterize their schools’ current discipline policies and procedures.
• Learn and practice the three steps for doing Proactive Plan B: empathy, define the problem, an invitation.
• Share their Plan B experience with other participants.
• Learn when and how to use Emergency Plan B and how to use Plan B in groups.
• Identify and consider structures for supporting and sustaining systemic change in discipline policies and procedures.
