Misbehavior as Communication
Transcript of Misbehavior as Communication
Presented by: Paula Anderson
Adler Graduate School
Alfred Adler stated that we have three basic needs which are:
THE FOUR GOALS OF MISBEHAVIOR
You will know when a student is feeling a need for attention because you will feel...
When a student fails to achieve these needs in a positive way...
* Display of Inadequacy
Our reactions have an effect on future behaviors of the student.
Positive, consistent learning experiences help children find a more productive way of meeting their needs.
You will know when a student is feeling a need for power because you will feel...
Angry or provoked
You will know when a student is feeling a need for revenge because you will feel...
Display of Inadequacy
You will know when a student is feeling a sense of inadequacy because you will feel...
How do we help students fulfill their needs?
Create a culture of social interest (where each student can achieve safety, significance and belonging)
Acknowledge difficulties and seek change
Be aware of what students are seeking through behaviors
Based on the works of Adler and Dreikurs
Utilize Resources such as:
Children the Challenge
by Rudolf Dreikurs
Maintaining Classroom Sanity
by Rudolf Dreikurs
and countless other print and electronic resources
Children seeking attention and power are exhibiting behaviors which are a natural part of growing up.
Children who are seeking revenge or who are experiencing feelings of inadequacy are at risk. These children need addtional help.
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
"A misbehaving child is a discouraged child."
One final thought...
