      We are very excited to announce the  publication of our book, Effective Discipline Policies: How to Create a System that Supports Young Children's Social-Emotional Competence.

      The purpose of our book is to provide clear, evidence-based information to early childhood program administrators about how to develop and implement high-quality behavior guidance policies that support teaching and learning and prevent and address challenging behaviors. Features include:
      • An overview of our humanistic approach to teaching and guidance
      • A chapter on culture and language
      • Tools to help program administrators use the TAGPEC to develop and implement high-quality, evidence-based, behavior guidance policies 
      • A special chapter on trauma and early childhood mental health, written by a pediatrician and child psychologist 


      Please join us for The Pipeline Project hosted by Dr. Longstreth and Child and Family Development Students at SDSU on Tuesday February 26 from 6:00-8:00, Montezuma Hall in the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union
