about

Behaviour remains a key concern for many working or aspiring to work with children and families. Written in a clear and readable style, this book considers theory and recent research on children's social and emotional development, highlighting the implications for effective practice in promoting positive behaviour.

The book encourages you to gain a broad picture of factors underpinning more challenging behaviour and to work positively and sensitively with children and families. By carefully considering the factors which support or undermine the fulfilment of children's basic psychological needs, fresh light is shed on some children's behaviour.

The approach also generates constructive ways of addressing unmet needs and considers the child's voice throughout.

With an emphasis firmly on finding ways to promote positive behaviour and to equip you with effective strategies to help the child, the book includes:

  • A strong evidence base
  • Case snippets to bring the approach and advice to life
  • A rich range of helpful strategies
  • Consideration of a range of viewpoints, including those of parents and practitioners
  • Links with the Early Years Foundation Stage

    If you are working or training to work with young children this book has a highly practical emphasis that will help you use theory to devise effective strategies to support children.
