Join Schools North East and John d'Abbro, Head of The New Rush Hall Group for this interactive one-day workshop.


John d’Abbro will outline why he believes it is vital for educational practitioners to have a working model and framework for understanding behaviour. Drawing from sociological, medical and psychological paradigms and 40 years’ experience of working with children presenting challenging behaviour, John will help you to understand and develop your own position on behaviour and mood management.


The day will provide you with an overview of what the current literature says about behaviour in schools, focusing on the causes of challenging behaviour, looking from both a systemic and human perspective.

The course will provide you with a range of strategies that can be used in managing challenging behaviour and opportunities for you to develop your own plan of action.
