The Handbook of Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties: Educational Engagement and Communication by Paul Cooper
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties can be some of the most difficult for teachers to understand and deal with. This book offers new insights into an age-old problem. At the heart of this book is the idea that social, emotional and behavioural difficulties can best be understood in educational terms if we consider the ways in communication, emotion and behaviour interact with one another to produce problems. This well-written and authoritative handbook is divided into three main sections - exploring the issues, practical responses and the way forward. The array of international contributors provide both teachers and trainees with practical strategies and techniques to ensure they get the most from their students with SEBD, as well as offering a cumulative contribution to this complex field. The contributors are: Bill Rogers, Paul Cooper, Sylvia McNamara, Egide Royer, Morag Hunter-Carsch, Edward J. Bond, Rosemary Sage, Alice Sluckin, Balbir Kaur Sohal, Daniella Sommefeldt, Jennifer Rogers, Jill Allison, Yonca Tiknaz, Avril Ellis, Katy Fuller, Peter Haase, Gerda Hanko, Stephen Weiss, Adrian Faupel, Dominique Wilson-Smith, Judith Mullen, Rosemary Duxbury, Shiroma DeSylva, Albie Ollivierre, Neil Kitson, Ian Jones, Chris Comber, Ted Cole, and Scilla Elworthy.
