Dreikurs is a social psychologist and his theory is based on four basic rules.
1.) All humans are social beings and their basic motivation is to belong and feel accepted.
2.) All behavior has a purpose
3.) Humans are decision making organisms
4.) Humans only perceive reality and this perception may be mistaken or biased.
Dreikurs believes that a child's behavior is the child trying to get in a group or fit in. He uses the following techniques to address misbehavior.
1.) Attention getting
2.)Power and control
3.) seeking control
4.) Seeking Revenge
5.) Displaying Indecency
Although he theory is effective, not many scholarly articles were supportive of Dreikurs work.
