Behaviour - Meeting the Additional Needs of EBD Learners in Further Education

Children in Crisis

Children growing up in the twenty first century face critical situations which seriously threaten their mental and physical well being. Bereavement, divorce, war, domestic violence, terrorism, bullying and neglect are only some of the factors that impact on children's lives. When we recgnise the power of such events to influence feelings, behavior and academic performance we are better equipped to help and support pupils through critical incidents in their lives.

Coping with Loss Situations

Pastoral Care and Behaviour
Young people encounter many situations where loss is involved from changing cirumstances, a breakdown in their own or parent's relationships, periods of low self-esteem to personal bereavement. Often their capacity to cope, with appropriate help, is not acknowledged. This course, based on work with young people of all ages and with adults who care for young people in different capacities, aims to provide a structure by which young people can develop their coping skills.

difficulty in attaining. For many students time management is
difficult and they lack the necessary skills to r esearch and plan
their work.

Eating their Hearts Out: Obesity to Anorexia

Pastoral Care and Behaviour
For many young people, food has become a way of controlling their environment and their lives. Childhood obesity is a serious problem with profound health and social consequences. It has received substantial media attention recently due partly to the rapid increase in prevalence across the UK as well as internationally. Current statistics suggest the prevalence of obesity in children is four times higher today than it was 30 years ago. Obesity in childhood is associated with numerous health and social consequences.

Effective Ways To Engage Families
