Description Developed by ICEP Europe, this course is designed to assist educators in meeting what is perhaps the greatest challenge of in our increasingly inclusive schools; serving the needs of students with social, emotional and behavioural problems. Issues such as violence, aggression, delinquency and substance abuse have become increasingly pervasive in schools. Overall, 10-15% of pupils in any school may present significant and serious emotional/ behaviour difficulties or be at risk of such problems. The challenge of educating these youngsters can seem daunting. But knowing what strategies work and how to implement them can help shift the balance between the risk and protective factors that shape a child's ability to thrive and promote their educational progress. This course offers you the latest in evidence-based measures that have proven effective in intervening with students who have social, emotional or behaviour problems and in creating safer, more effective schools.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students
Evidence underpinning this approach

Designed for teachers and other professionals working with youngsters at both primary and secondary level, this 20 hour online course introduces participants to a wide range of models, methods and strategies for supporting pupils with social, emotional and behavioural problems. The course focuses on proven strategies and interventions at the level of the school, classroom and individual student. It enables you to gain an understanding of the causal factors in development of emotional and behaviour problems and the learning and behavioural implications of such difficulties. Assessment methods and identification issues are explained and examined. Participants are also encouraged to reflect on and develop their own practice and that of their school in relation to supporting students who have emotional and behavioural problems and may be exhibiting challenging behaviour, or who are at risk of developing challenging behaviour. Among the topics covered are the relevant legislative and policy framework; early intervention; promoting resilience and reducing risk; whole-school policy and strategies; strategies for building emotional literacy and pathways to increasing academic success; effective individual and group interventions for students with social, emotional or behavioural difficulties with a particular emphasis on dealing with challenging behaviours. Staff support issues and teacher stress will also be addressed.

How users/participants can evaluate success

While this course is primarily designed for teachers and other professionals working with youngsters at both primary and post primary level, it may also be helpful for parents who want more detailed information about the development and education of children and young people.
