Intentional and Relationship-based Guidance

Sue Martin, Patricia Corson

Building on the authors’ years of experience preparing educators to meet the demands of this challenging field, this text embraces the centrality of relationships for guiding children. Intentional and Relationship-based Guidance helps readers develop a philosophy of guidance that is based in shared values, providing a tool-kit for educators as they prepare for their roles. Emphasizing the importance of long-term intentions over short-term solutions, this text supports improved parent-professional partnerships, develops best practices for decisions and actions associated with guiding children, and highlights the necessity of respect and social inclusion in all elements of practice.
