These are skills that can be taught. This invaluable text explains how adult attachment theory offers new ways to examine professional teaching relationships, classroom management and collegial harmony: equally important information for school leaders, teacher mentors and proteges. Attachment Theory and the Teacher-Student Relationship addresses three significant gaps in the current literature on classroom management: the effects of teachers’ attachment style on the formation and maintenance of classroom and staffroom relationships the importance of attachment processes in scaffolding teachers’ and students emotional responses to daily educational tasks the degree of influence these factors have on teachers’ classroom behaviour, particularly management of student behaviour. Based on recent developments in adult attachment theory, this book highlights the key aspects of teacher-student relationships that teachers and teacher educators should know.

A clear-headed and relatable guidebook for navigating the student-teacher relationship by one of the first female Buddhist teachers in the West. All major forms of Buddhism stress the need for a teacher. However, the importance of having a guide or guru is sometimes a source of cultural and spiritual confusion as Buddhism expands in the West. A clear understanding of the Buddhist view of the guru is essential for the student-teacher relationship to be beneficial for one's spiritual growth. Collecting over fifty years of personal experiences as both a student and a teacher, Shenpen Hookham writes candidly of the opportunities and challenges facing modern Dharma students in the West who wish to study with a teacher. Traditional texts often do not reflect how the student-teacher relationship manifests in practice, which leaves many pressing questions and a great deal of confusion in communities taking root in the West. With honesty and clarity, Hookham discusses the roles of the teacher, practices related to the guru, and commonly asked questions she receives as a teacher. This handbook is the first of its kind, breaking down in a pragmatic and relatable way everything you need to know to enter a student-teacher relationship with open eyes and an open heart.

Although Tibetan Buddhism continues to grow in popularity, the crucial relationship between teacher and student remains largely misunderstood. Dangerous Friend offers an in-depth exploration of this mysterious and complex bond, a relationship of paramount importance in Tibetan Buddhist practice. According to Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the student must have complete trust in the teacher (the "dangerous friend") if he or she is to achieve any understanding. It is the teacher's responsibility to uphold the integrity of the tradition, the basis of which is compassion for all beings, by transmitting it properly to an appropriate student. Likewise, it is the student's responsibility to meet the challenge of carrying on the lineage of teachings. By entering such a relationship, both teacher and student accept the burden of protecting those teachings by understanding them completely and correctly, by practicing them fully and faultlessly, and by transmitting them without omission. Dangerous Friend includes discussions of the following topics: • Meeting and recognizing an appropriate teacher. • Understanding the gravity of entering the teacher-student relationship. • Shifting one's approach from spiritual materialism to genuine Buddhist practice. • Accepting the challenge of being truly kind, honest, and courageous.

Good Relationships in Schools

The relationship between teacher and student is an important element of school education and as such irreplaceable: If we want schools to be good places for those who teach and learn there, we must make sure that the educational relationships between teachers and students are good, too. In research about school education, surprisingly little attention is paid to the normative dimension of the relationship between teacher and student. This lacuna points to a desideratum in the philosophy of education: More should be said about the normative structure of the teacher-student relationship, its role in teaching and learning, and its final value for teacher and student. Answering these fundamental philosophical questions is the core of this book. It offers a normatively rich concept of a good teacher-student relationship that is based on the analysis of two major relationship goods: trust and care. Moreover, the book explains the instrumental value of a good educational relationship for the student’s achievement of epistemic aims of school education as well as the final value of such a relationship for teacher and student.

This book presents a potential hierarchy between the three basic psychological needs central to Self-Determination Theory (SDT). Findings from the author’s research suggest that the motivation to exercise autonomy is an outcome that is cumulatively influenced by the perceived quality of the teacher-student relationship and students’ perceived competence within specific learning contexts and with a specific teacher. These findings are the basis for three hypotheses regarding students’ motivation to engage with learning activities. The first is that perceived competence is informed by and reciprocally informs the quality of the teacher-student relationship. The second is that students’ perceived competence and the quality of the teacher-student relationship have a combined impact upon students’ autonomous motivation. The final posit is that a teacher can be autonomy supportive both prior to and during activities where students have opportunities to exercise their autonomy. Such autonomy support includes the influence of teacher feedback upon students’ perceived competence and their subsequent motivation to autonomously engage with learning activities. This research begins to unravel such motivational interplay through an SDT-informed model, which is used as the basis for discussing the specific influence of teacher feedback and autonomy support upon students’ engagement with learning activities in formal learning settings. The findings and model are worthy of further testing and development, as part of the wider agenda of student engagement, wellbeing and positive psychology prevalent in educational research, education psychology, and the philosophy of social motivation.

Throw light upon the causes that contribute to the restlessness among students. Students are not to be blamed for their being restive and violent. They are the products of the situations in which they are being raised. They are what they are shaped to be. Since the ancient times an authoritarian tendency has characterised the attitudes of teachers among others in authority in educational institutions towards the students. Students have not had the necessary attention and affection. The most important of the causes stands out to be the absence of cordial teacher-student relationship plus the conducive educational and institutional environment. Recommendations It is interesting to note that a good teacher, even if he is not a good man, is more respected than a bad teacher who may be a good man. It is obvious, therefore, that professional excellency and commitment on the part of the teachers will go a long way to curb student unrest in our educational institutions. Dr. S.N. Ratha, Professor and Head, Post Graduate Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Sambalpur University, Orissa. ``The author has done his work critically and well. He has chosen a new parameter-Teacher-student Relationship'-in his study and is well taken. From authors like McCormack to Altbach, very few authors have explored this dimension of the problem except very tangentially. Mr. Ghose's is a full-length study on this dimension with all its ramifications. I congratulate the author for his painstaking and critical expose.........'' Bela Dutt Gupta, Professor of Sociology, Calcutta University, West Bengal. ``I recommend ................ for its originality and boldness. I think the results of this study be known to all teachers and educationists.'' Dr. N.C. Choudhary, Professor of Sociology and Social Anthroplogy, University of North Bengal. Review ``The findings are logically arrived at and cogently presented in a readable simple style. No doubt this book will be useful to all those who have interest in the areas of sociology, education, political sociology in general and to those who are interested in the problems affecting the youth in particular''.

This book brings together recent research on interpersonal relationships in education from a variety of perspectives including research from Europe, North America and Australia. The work clearly demonstrates that positive teacher-student relationships can contribute to student learning in classrooms of various types. Productive learning environments are characterized by supportive and warm interactions throughout the class: teacher-student and student-student. Similarly, at the school level, teacher learning thrives when there are positive and mentoring interrelationships among professional colleagues. Work on this book began with a series of formative presentations at the second International Conference on Interpersonal Relationships in Education (ICIRE 2012) held in Vancouver, Canada, an event that included among others, keynote addresses by David Berliner, Andrew Martin and Mieke Brekelmans. Further collaboration and peer review by the editorial team resulted in the collection of original research that this book comprises. The volume (while eclectic) demonstrates how constructive learning environment relationships can be developed and sustained in a variety of settings. Chapter contributions come from a range of fields including educational and social psychology, teacher and school effectiveness research, communication and language studies, and a variety of related fields. Together, they cover the important influence of the relationships of teachers with individual students, relationships among peers, and the relationships between teachers and their professional colleagues.

Many types of relationships have been examined in the communication and sociology fields but rarely are they studied in education. This exploratory investigation looks at the unique relationship that exists between teachers and students. It is supported by relational communication research and classroom management theory. It creates a beginning look at key relationship building components such as self-disclosure, listening, humor, and love. Reflections upon student and teacher interviews lead to a new understanding of the dynamics between teachers and students. The results will eventually be included in a book aimed at new teachers.

This study explored the relationship between the conflict management style of elementary teachers and the quality of teacher-student relationship in four public schools in North of Lebanon. A mixed method research, including two questionnaires and one interview, was conducted. Seventy five teachers from grade 1 to grade 4 participated in the study. The Thomas-Kilmann Instrument (TKI) was used to measure teachers conflict management style and the Student-Teacher Relationship Scale, Short Form (STRS-SF) to assess the quality of the teacher-student relationship. After the respondents answered the interview, data were collected and statistics including Chi Square Tests and one way ANOVA were performed. The results showed that each of the five conflict management styles (Competing, Collaborating, Compromising, Avoiding, and Accommodating) significantly differs in terms of closeness and conflict in the teacher-student relationship. In addition, the collaborating style was proved to be the most appropriate one since it had the highest percentage in closeness. Moreover, factors including teachers age, level of education and years of experience were also tested and interpreted in relation to the quality of teacher-student relationship. Finally, recommendations for improving the teachers-student relationship were made.
