Working with challenging behaviour: What to do when classroom-wide interventions aren’t succeeding 

School and class-wide behaviour plans are wonderful except for that percentage of students whose issues require a more individualised approach. In this course, participants will learn concrete, effective strategies that will make their work with the most challenging students and their families more productive and effective.

Through a combination of lecture and practical exercises, participants will learn:

  • How to achieve success with even the most resistant individuals
  • How to utilise the student’s strengths to manage their difficult behaviour
  • Strategies for dealing with a range of common problems (acting out, defiance, anxiety, bullying)
  • What to do when what you normally do isn’t working.

Frances Steinberg PhD, psychologist, received her doctorate from John Hopkins University in 1975. Frances has worked in a variety of settings including special schools for emotionally and learning disabled students, private practice, and special education services. Frances is the author of numerous books including Working with Difficult Children and Adolescents, Creating Partnerships, Positive Positioning as well as the interactive learning programmes FLEX and De-volution.
