Professionals working with children and adolescents consistently rate the management of children's social and behavioural problems as one of their major concerns. It is therefore important that professionals are able to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively deal with these problems in a way which promotes a positive teaching and learning environment for all children.
The overall aim of this course is to introduce professionals working with children to information concerning the following: emotional and behavioural problems of children and adolescents; the nature of the causes of these problems; various approaches to assisting young people to overcome these problems. The course outlines the kinds of problems professionals can expect to encounter and elaborates on a range of strategies, both preventive and remedial, for responding in a positive and effective manner to them. The intent of the course is to assist professionals to develop a sound understanding of the nature of emotional and behavioural problems of children and young people, and to develop an awareness of appropriate ways of dealing with the difficulties.
