A practical resource that utilises the SEBS philosophy (Teaching Social, Emotional and Behavioural Skills). With a very 'hands-on' approach to managing behaviour all the scenarios in this resource are taken from real-life situations and can be used during staff training or simply as a reference book. The book reflects situations that confront educational professionals on a day-to-day basis:
How to manage the student who always wants the last word
Setting boundaries .
Managing anger, including your own .
Dealing with difficult parents .
Successful lunchtimes .
Creating an emotionally literate environment .
Behaviour plans .
Building self-esteem .
Coping with difficult colleagues.
A brilliant resource to have as part of an induction pack or as an essential companion to continuing professional development. All key stages.

'Stott gets right to the point by describing 50 behaviour management problems and leaving the reader with a tip for each. It is easily readable and exudes an air of calm from Tip 1 (Behaviour Management During Cover Lessons - Top Tip: Establish Simple Procedures) to Tip 50 (Who Wants the Last Word - Top Tip: Scripted Responses Work - Reaction Inflames). The format allows the reader to jump to the area of interest without trawling through lengthy descriptions and is therefore easy to dip into during a spare 10 minutes.' - Speech and Language Therapy in Practice
