Implementing the Re-Set Process and associated practices has been a game-changer for many of our students with trauma. Because of that success, implementation is expanding throughout our district. This book provides extensive classroom and school-friendly strategies that have proven to de-escalate and re-regulate students while maintaining an environment that maximizes learning. Dyane's consultations have moved us forward by providing strategies that balance the needs of students with the needs of staff and now this book makes her process and knowledge available to a much wider audience.
Angela Marley, Elementary School Principal
As a former school administrator, I was one of the many who clamored for Dyane's expertise and staff development time. She's the best of the best! Notably, Dyane was presenting to my group of school counselors and psychologists when the horrific news of the Sandy Hook shooting erupted. Dyane's sensitivity, both in guiding the staff through their shock and grief, as well as managing her own, was remarkable. I know her book will be full of helpful information for educators.
Phyllis Boyd, School Administrator, Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit
Dyane is a talented behavioral consultant. As an elementary principal, she supported the teaching staff to gain an understanding of students with trauma. A teacher commented, “We need a Dyane Carrere App.” That says it all!
