Changing chronic problem behavior in primary schools: a client-centered ecosystemic approach for teachers


Ken Tyler


In the ecosystemic approach, if something changes in the interpersonal system, the problem behavior will change.

Ecosystemics incorporated with the person-centered approach offers a range of techniques for addressing problem behaviors in schools.
