Behavior Management Resource Guide
For over 15 years through multiple research and development projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs and the Institute of Education Sciences, we have developed and evaluated curricula designed to help students manage their anger, solve social problems, and manage conflicts.
Our research team at the University of Florida has focused on how to manage student behavior in schools effectively and efficiently in two primary areas:
- Anger management through social problem-solving for upper elementary and middle/junior high school students
- Conflict resolution and peer mediation in middle schools
Anger Management through Social Problem Solving
We have developed and are continuing to evaluate Tools for Getting Along, an anger management and social problem-solving curriculum for upper elementary school students, over a 12-year period, reaching approximately 3000 students in over 100 classrooms. More recently, we developed Take CHARGE! , a similar program for middle and junior high school students.
Conflict Resolution & Peer Mediation
Working Together to Resolve Conflict is a school-wide conflict resolution program evaluated over a four year period. It has been used in over 100 school districts in the United States and world-wide.
