'The book is clearly written and nicely structured so that you don't need to be doing the course or have completed the course to find it accessible. It would be an extremely useful, practical, 'how to' guide to people working within the educational field who wish to optimise their management of challenging behaviour, and to promote socio-emotional skills and well-being amongst the children they work with' -

It values positive reinforcement, incentives and problem-solving modelling is a safe setting' - International Journal of Children's Spirituality
`The book is full of sensible and practical ideas. The chapters are easy to access, and charts and illustrations are well used to support the ideas of the text.... The author also weaves a strong value of partnership with parents, with some helpful scenarios about positive and negative ways for teachers to talk with fellow adults' - Jennie Lindon, Nursery World
`This is a "must-buy" for teachers and other professionals working with children presenting with aggressive or other child behaviour problems. The book details the Dinosaur School curriculum for children (4 - 8 year olds) with social and problem-solving difficulties.... The practical ideas would also be of great interest to parents. Inspirational read!' - Andy Gill, Practical Parenting
`I found this to be a fun and practical book which, given Carolyn Webster-Stratton's research background and her "hands on" experience as a psychologist, may not be so surprising. I also feel that she achieved her stated aims. I would certainly recommend this book to psychologists, teachers and parents' - BPS Newsletter (Division of Educational and Child Psychology)
"This books is readable, packed with advice on managing children’s misbehavior, and reminds us of future dangers stemming from escalating violence and aggression in young children."(Nancy Elliott Children's Social and Economics Education)

The course is based on the observations and strategies of the author, Carolyn Webster-Startton, and the book is proving to be invaluable as a 'Bible' for constant reference!
