The Understanding Disturbed Behaviour in Children and Adolescents module is presented by Maria Boyle, Specialist School Counsellor at Rivendell School.

This module gives a brief overview of the theoretical perspectives that help us understand disturbed behaviour in children and adolescents.

The presentation aims to stimulate discussion and awareness of how a young person’s background and emotional state can impact on their social relationships, academic performance and view of the world.

The module looks at various presentations of disturbed behaviour emphasising the key elements of relationship based classroom practice including understanding, managing our own reactions and providing structure and consistency.
