Understanding Child and Adolescent Behaviour in the Classroom is a vital guide for pre-service and in-service teachers, providing the tools to respond effectively and ethically to child and adolescent behaviour that is of concern.

Key practical issues that are addressed include: Building a purposeful and emotionally and psychologically positive classroom culture Recognising and responding to children who present with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD/EBD) Using research to inform and enrich classroom practice around student conduct Working collegially to respond to the social, emotional and/or behavioural needs of individual students, including those needs associated with poor mental health and/or child protection Cutting-edge research from psychology, behavioural science and education is accessibly presented to help develop professional expertise and knowledge in the area of child and adolescent behaviour.
