A Guide to Developing Pupils' Emotional and Cognitive Skills
This book explores ways of nurturing resilience in vulnerable students. It proposes a positive way of thinking about schools as institutions that can foster cognitive and socio-emotional competence in all students. It examines effective practices, and assesses a range of classroom processes, such as engagement, inclusion, and prosocial behaviour.
The contributors stress that EBDs are a form of communication, albeit an antagonistic one, and evaluate the success of different methods of intervention in clinical, educational and family settings. They argue that successful intervention requires an appreciation of the complex interplay in the social and personal factors affecting each child.
Connecting with Children with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties
The authors present evidence of the success of nurture groups, and examine what factors affect the success of the group. From this they draw key messages for effective practice, including the importance of recognising a child's emotional needs and meeting them, and the role of the relationship between the teaching staff co-ordinating the group.
