  • Factors that drive students to misbehave and practical ways to address these.
  • Evidence-based interventions available in NZ for teachers and families.
  • There is a set of core principles that underline many well-established psychological treatments. Having an awareness of these core ideas can revolutionise how you approach children and young people at school, at home and in the community.
