Motivating Your Children...

Motivational Interviewing with Adolescents and Young Adults

by Sylvie Naar-King & Mariann Suarez (2011, Guilford, 35.00/hardback)

When adolescents are truly motivated to pursue a goal, their energy, intensity, and capacity for change can be remarkable. This pragmatic guide spells out how to use motivational interviewing to have productive conversations about behavior change. This book provides vivid examples, sample dialogues, and "dos and don'ts." We think you'll find this book an invaluable resource if you work with teens. [6.5" x 9.5"...224 pages]

School-Wide Guidance: Be a Shining Star!
: Quick and Easy Programs to Motivate Every Student

by Lisa Miller (2007, MarCo, 26.95)

This book is divided into two sections: The first part explains the Shining Stars Guidance Program, and the second is a collection of schoolwide programs for each month of the school year. This program is designed to increase positive social interaction—to stop the day-to-day bullying, teasing, and fighting that take up much of a counselor’s time. You'll find a selection of ideas that recognize students who perform good deeds, students who set a good example, and students who excel academically. (Includes a CD-ROM of the activities.) Grades K-6. [8.5" x 11"...128 pages]

Motivating Students Who Don't Care:
Successful Techniques for Educators

by Allen Mendler (2000, Solution Tree, 9.95)

A practical guide for reconnecting with discouraged students and reawakening their excitement and enthusiasm for learning. With proven strategies from the classroom, this resource identifies five effective processes the reader can use to reawaken motivation in students who aren't prepared, don't care, and won't work. These processes include emphasizing effort, creating hope, respecting power, building relationships, and expressing enthusiasm. Each process is fully explained and illustrated with proven strategies from the classroom. Grades K-12. [6” x 9”...69 pages]
