Dealing with behaviour problems, students with difficulties, developing policies, promoting positive strategies, resolving disputes – are core concerns for teachers, principals, management, parents and policy makers. Indeed there are few more challenging issues in education today. The work of Patricia Dwyer at the Centre for Education Services addresses all of these concerns in a most effective, resourceful and practical manner. This guide weaves together the key elements towards making a worthwhile response to ‘Achieving Positive Behaviour’ – best practise across Ireland, the lessons of worldwide research and clear guidelines for action. This book will be a valuable asset to practioners and those with any responsibility for, or interest in, behaviour issues.
This book will:
Present best practise form a variety of contexts
Provide a range of models to move schools from policy to practise
Give an overview of global responses to behaviour management
Outline policy-development approaches
Offer solutions to particular concerns in the behaviour area
