The discussions mention Dave Whitaker’s recent book, ‘The Kindness Principle: Making relational behaviour management work in schools’.
The book begins with the idea that relationships should be at the heart of behaviour management and culture, and sets out the ways in which the adoption of relational approaches can help create safer and happier schools. Schools where all staff and learners are valued and understood, where expectations and standards are high, and where kindness and acceptance matter.
Topics covered in the book include:
- restorative approaches
- unconditional positive regard
- building personal resilience
- structures and routines
- the ins and outs of rewards and sanctions
The book is available to purchase via the ‘Independent Thinking Press’ website or your preferred book retailer…
