School Psychology 2 - EDMT5673

Year - 2018

The assessment of behaviour problems, both externalising and internalising, is introduced as it applies to children and young people in educational and home settings. Links between the theories, descriptions and classification of problem behaviour, and DoE practice in NSW is highlighted. Appropriate strategies for the assessment of behaviour problems, programming for classroom behaviour management, programming support strategies for externalising mental health problems, and the evaluation of intervention programs, are discussed as they apply to the educational and other environments in which School Counsellors work. Alternative settings for individuals with behaviour and mental health difficulties are critically evaluated.
