A cognitive approach to behaviour modification
Where there is an imbalance between the perspective of a student and a school, misunderstandings and conflict can arise. Learning to Behave offers a programme of support to help achieve an equilibrium in which students learn to see other viewpoints and engage constructively in learning opportunities. Grounded in a cognitive approach, it essentially offers a type of training in problem-solving skills as students identify problems, generate alternatives, think about consequences and find solutions. This highly adaptable resource will be useful in a wide range of contexts, such as in teaching life or learning skills (including key competencies), running an individual behaviour programme and working with small groups.
