What do teachers really need to know (and do) to confidently mitigate, address, and resolve the sheer volume and complexity of challenging classroom behaviours they face?

In It’s Never Just About the Behaviour: A holistic approach to classroom behaviour management, educator Claire English answers this very question. Behaviour isn't ever just about the behaviour itself and effective behaviour management isn’t about simply responding to a behaviour.  It is about thinking through:
*the 'why' behind the behaviour,
*the 'what' is going on in the body and the brain, and
*the 'how' you can proactively craft your pedagogy and practice to support the wellbeing, development and educational experience of all students.

This book explores behaviour and classroom management through a holistic and best practice approach. It is driven by engaging and relatable narratives, grounded in research and delivers essential, actionable, and highly relevant professional learning on behaviour management. Claire empowers you to take the action you can take when you walk into your classroom. To feel supported, confident and equipped to turn your own space into an island of safety and support for each one of your students. To know that, when challenging behaviours inevitably pop up, you’ll be able to respond to them effectively and calmly. Allowing you to do the job that you got into the profession to do, and do it damn well. To teach.
