Laura Ecken is introduced and the collaborative process is described in which Laura and I engaged to document the happenings in Laura’s classroom that eventually became the heart of this book. The chapter begins with a description of Laura’s efforts to win the trust of a very troubled and difficult student using Developmental Discipline, an approach to classroom management based on attachment theory. Laura’s school was engaged with the Child Development Project, a school change project that focused on children’s social and ethical as well as intellectual development. The chapter tells the story of Laura’s success with the student; her unhappiness with the school’s former controlling, assertive approach to classroom management and discipline; and her agreement to engage in a collaborative process to document her use of attachment theory to guide her approach to managing her classroom.

Keywords:   Developmental Discipline, Child Development Project, attachment theory, Laura Ecken, Laura’s classroom, Laura’s students
