Behaviour Problems in the Comprehensive School.
Upton, Graham, Ed.; Gobell, Alexander, Ed.
The book examines approaches for serving behavior problem students in the ordinary British School. The first of four sections provides a theoretical framework against which to consider educational services for behavior problem students. Topics addressed include the emotional climate of the classroom and the nature and development of behavior problems. Classroom applications--including class management training, behavior modification in the secondary school, and the effects of adolescent behavior on teacher stress--are examined in the five papers of section 2. Seven papers constitute section 3's examination of current practice and include descriptions of counseling programs in secondary schools, a positive rewards system, and social skills training in a pastoral care group. The final section analyzes the potential of current trends, commenting upon issues of leadership in educational change, school-based inservice training, and psychological services. (CL)
