THE DR. BUZZ METHOD: COPING AND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR CLASSROOM AND SCHOOLWIDE MANAGEMENT helps educators and parents build educational environments that support student success - especially for those kids who struggle the most. This means focusing on:
- Emotional validation.
- Structured and predictable school settings.
- Effective communication and strategically developed coping skills that allow for improved performance as well as reduce stress, while holding students reasonably accountable.
When these elements are consistently provided, the schools that implement the Dr. Buzz Method regularly see fewer behavioral problems, increased engagement, and improved academic outcomes. What's more, students are not only provided the optimum environment in which to thrive, they gain the skills they need to cope with adversity, daily life challenges, and personal differences now and into adulthood.
This book is for anyone who wants a proven system to support students academically, emotionally, and socially.
"Dr. Buzz's Method is a game-changer for students who are neurotypical and those who are often considered complex. Teaching students how to learn, how to manage their differences, and how to advocate for what they may need to be successful, builds students into resilient individuals who can function independently."
- Tony Gebbia, Executive Director of Montgomery Academy, Basking Ridge, NJ
"Dr. Buzz Mingin is a rock star, but in a modest way. When I first attended a seminar that he did at our local high school, I knew there was something different about him and his approach to stress, anxiety, and mental health in general. My wife and I scheduled a 30-minute appointment with him to discuss the challenges that our daughter was having. We had previously been to a "Who's Who" list of therapists and outpatient treatment facilities, and two hours into our appointment with him, we left feeling like there was hope. He did not disappoint. It took us weeks to get my daughter to meet him, but once she did, he connected with her better than anyone before. He established a treatment plan and she bought into it. We were soon on a path forward that produced incremental progress in her anxiety, OCD, and overall outlook on life. He taught her tools to use in challenging times, and she still follows his guidance years later. I strongly urge you to open your mind and give Dr. Buzz's Method a serious effort."
"Implementing the Dr. Buzz Method in both our alternative high school program and special education program has produced great results. Creating student accountability through the use of a self-monitoring token economy, while modeling and teaching students how to cope for their own individual differences, has allowed for greater student social, behavioral, academic, and emotional development."
