What’s in it for teachers?
- Kids who are potentially self-aware, resilient and able to manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. (Sometimes children don’t want to change their behaviours or unhelpful beliefs because their current habits are meeting their needs. These children may require additional support in the form of an individual behaviour plan with input from parents and/or inter agencies.)
