Known for social discipline model
All behavior is purposeful
Four types of goals that motivate children's misbehaviors:
1. Attention getting
2. Power and control
3. Revenge
4. Helplessness or inability


How a teacher can understand the goal of the misbehaving child:
Teacher feels annoyed = child’s is attention getting.
Teacher feels intimidated= child’s goal is power.
Teacher feels hurt= child’s goal is revenge.
Teacher feels incapable= child’s goal is helplessness.
Social Discipline Model

Takes place before response

Takes place after behavior
