Description

Difficult pupil behaviour presents a number of issues for teachers, parents, other pupils as well as for children themselves. Inevitably it raises a number of emotions and challenges people's sense of their own personal effectiveness.

This edited collection of short, concise chapters provides advice and guidance to professionals on how to respond to the emotions experienced and generated by pupils with behavioural difficulties in schools. Many chapters are written by such professionals themselves and address common problems in a practical and accessible way. Working with Emotions is an essential text for all schools, support services, LEAs, SENCOs and voluntary agencies and includes discussions on the government's current Social Inclusion initiative.

Reviews

'A strong thrust of this book, when taken as a whole, is to suggest a fundamental change in practice away from control towards learning and the book itself is an excellent starting point for this change.' - George Head, Journal for Moral Education

'The book that I would like to read again. Fresh and topical, with theoretical strands well integrated into practice.' - NASEN Academic Book Award 2002 Judging Panel
