Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This new and updated edition of Managing Very Challenging Behaviour is brimming with practical, tried-and-tested guidance for dealing with difficult and disruptive behaviour in schools. With sage advice on how to tackle negative attitudes and ways to engage parents and guardians, this accessible book uses a unique approach to encourage teachers to reflect on their own practice and stay positive when things get tough.

Packed with strategies for managing low and medium level disruption, as well as higher-level aggression, Louisa provides a comprehensive framework for dealing with the full spectrum of challenging behaviour. This edition expands on the popular original, with new sections on topical issues such as dealing with gang culture, understanding group dynamics and useful suggestions for coping with stress.

Managing Very Challenging Behaviour provides invaluable support for all professionals tackling extreme behaviour in primary and secondary schools, including established teachers, SENCOs and NQTs.

Includes index.
