Q: "I am going to order [one of the books] you suggested Seeing Red: An Anger Management and Peacemaking Curriculum. Sounds like Marco Products is a great place to buy supplies - or is there another place you'd suggest?"
A: I would recommend Amazon for purchasing resources. I have an Amazon store of books I recommend. You can visit it at: http://astore.amazon.com/school014-20. I have found that Amazon tends to be cheaper than a lot of other retailers for counseling resources. Amazon has free shipping on most orders of $25 or more.
Another place to purchase great books and resources is Free Spirit Publishing. I have always been very pleased with the resources from Free Spirit Publishing. Free Spirit Publishing has free material downloads from time to time, such as book chapters or facilitator guides.
Check out my blog entry about one of my FAVORITE books I use for classroom guidance, Goodbye Bully Machine. I created a bulletin board using Goodbye Bully Machine as the theme. Free Spirit Publishing offers a free facilitator's guide download for Goodbye Bully Machine!
Free Spirit Publishing has a Free Spirit facebook page where they offer ideas and give information about free resources and downloads. I actually won the book Real Kids, Real Stories, Real Change from Free Spirit Publishing during a Free Spirit facebook page contest. You can also follow follow Free Spirit on Twitter!
Hope this gives you some ideas about where to find great counseling resources!
