The research and history of behaviour management

Author: David Vinegrad

Why should CRT's be interested in the history and research about behaviour management? Because if we don't remember history we will be at risk of repeating it. This is often the problem with managing student behaviour, the same old programs come around with a new shine put on them however the philosophy and approach is still the same. Working as a CRT often encourages schools to take a 'get tough' approach and we ignore at least 50 years of research that should encourage us to take a different approach to relationships and discipline. This session will give you a snapshot of the history and some of the research that just might get schools and hopefully 'you' to do the business of behaviour a bit differently.
