Ordering Information

A 5 is Against the Law!

Building on the 5-point scale, Kari has written a workbook for adolescents and young adults called A 5 Is Against the Law! The book takes a narrower look at challenging behavior with a particular focus on behaviors that can spell trouble for youth who have difficulty understanding and maintaining social boundaries.

The book uses a direct and simple style with lots of examples and hands-on activities. The idea behind the 5-point scale is to take a social or emotional concept and break it into 5 parts to make it easier to understand the different degrees of social behavior. The approach makes use of a systematic method to teach difficult and often frustrating social information. The reader is introduced to the idea that behavior that may have been considered "annoying" or "rude" (a #3) when they were younger, can actually be against the law (a #5) when they become adults.

There is a section devoted to anxiety and how to cope with this emotion before it begins to escalate. Ideas for using the anxiety curve are included. Throughout the book, the reader is encouraged to think about and create his own behavior and anxiety scale that might apply to his particular emotions and situations. This book is designed to be used in 1:1 teaching formats or with a small group."

A 5 is Could Make Me Lose Control!

This unique hands-on activity helps students who are highly anxious cope with their stress by systematizing social and emotional information. Using this self-contained product, the student literally sorts cards describing highly stressful situations into colorful pockets designating stress levels, ranging from 5-1, as a first step in changing the way he thinks about and responds to emotions such as anxiety, sadness and anger. A laminated erasable page and blank cards enable parents and teachers to individualize this innovative program. Suggestions for how to include it as part of a functional behavior assessment and a problem-solving activity are included.
