`This publication is a valuable and timely contribution to the current investigations into the behaviours of children and young people that impact on their emotional health. The book will serve as a practical guide for schools addressing the problem as they see it, the case studies vividly illustrating situations and behaviours that teachers will readily recognise. This is a well structured book. [It] deserves to be read and can serve as a source of information on how various behaviours have been defined, investigated and addressed.
This text supports learners understanding of the key terms emotional health & wellbeing. The text uses examples and definitions to support understanding professional terms.
This book contains some really valuable explanations to why some young people display certain behaviours and helps us to understand the links between emotional health and wellbeing and behaviours.
I will use this as a supplement for students who are specifically interested in well-being.
Well laid out and recommended essential read for those involved emotional health and well being in the school environment.
Particularly useful for our current module, childhood health and well-being. Some useful information that helps clarify issues surrounding social and emotional issues for children.
The emphasis on a Whole School Approach was particularly useful. Chapters on specific difficulties clear and well written.
This is exactly what it says on the cover: "A Practical Guide for Schools". It has pertinent resources and it offers sound guidance for emotional health and well-being within the school environment.
Good book for supporting Pastoral care within FE, not suitable for course
case studies clear and help students link theory to practice clearer
encourages reflective practice
encompasses wide range of topics that are relevant to all child health practitioners and indeed those working within the education setting in relation to the health needs of children and young people from an emotional wellbeing perspective
guidance throughout the text is practical and realistic to everyday life and the areas where practitioners may require additional support in meeting those children and young people's needs
A helpful text for those working with older children and younger people.
The authors tackle issues we as adults don't want to think about with regards to children growing up. This book delves into sensitive issues around children and young peoples emotional well-being with guidance on what to look for and how and when to intervene. An essential book for any childhood educator.
This book provides a good overview of the various kinds of interventions one may use in a school setting. While it is an informative and useful resource, there is little in the way of understanding a child/young person's perspective. At a basic level, a child's understanding of a situation should be more thoroughly investigated before choosing a suitable intervention. While we cannot expect teachers to be counsellors (or vice versa!) it would be useful to highlight this gap in the teaching world.
Great guide for school teachers and school counselors with lots of good ideas for interventions to turn schools into more positive institutions.
