The materials here are for students and teachers! The toolkit contains information on basic needs and provides food for thought on how basic needs can be met (strategies) so that these strategies are also sustainable. The theoretical concepts come from William Glasser's Choice Theory and from Marshall Rosenberg and his Nonviolent Communication. The toolkit is available in different formats.
