In this episode, we catch up with behaviour specialist Adele Bates who offers us a range of ideas and advice focused on how we can deal with and prevent challenging behaviour, teach self-regulation, and build relationships in our classrooms

In this episode, we catch up with Adele Bates, a behaviour specialist, former teacher, and author of the new book Miss I Don’t Give a Sh*t: Engaging with challenging behaviour in schools.

Our practical discussion looks at how we can deal with and prevent challenging behaviour in our classrooms. We discuss what challenging behaviour looks like, when it occurs and handling incidents.

We ask how we can create safety, boundaries and routines for vulnerable young people, including seating plans.

We discuss how teachers can “see the child, not the behaviour”, including issues of punishment, shame, and “checking in” with students.

We look at the communication of unmet needs, how to “teach” behaviour and self-regulation, connection before correction, and building relationships with our most vulnerable students (including the PACE approach).
