Guiding the Behaviour of Children and Young People Linking Theory and Practice 0-18 Years
Guiding the Behaviour of Children and Young People offers practical ideas on positive approaches across childhood and adolescence, across a full range of 0-18 years. The book provides the theory and concepts behind these ideas to ensure readers develop a thoughtful approach to the issues surrounding behaviour. Key areas of coverage in this resource include: theories, concepts, and their practical application; focus on the perspective of children and young people; the adult role in guiding children's behaviour; the central importance of attachment and sustained relationships; behaviour choices within a social and cultural context; key issues in guiding behaviour and reflective practice; the value of open-ended observation and careful interpretation; behaviour that poses particular difficulties, and cooperation and partnership between the grown-ups.
This book is suitable for both those working directly with the age group and for team leaders, advisors, and tutors. The content and approach will also be very supportive for students working towards child care qualifications at levels 3 and 4, and for experienced practitioners involved in advanced study for the different kinds of Foundation degrees, and also Early Childhood Studies degrees.
A key feature of this book is that it encompasses the different settings in which children and young people spend their time. Readers will find the common strands, as well as special features, of daily life in early years provision, primary and secondary school, playwork settings, youth work, and family life.
