The intervention - is divided up into 7 sessionsThe student pack - contains between 19 - 24 worksheets The facilitator pack - accompanies the student pack contains roughly 35 - 40 pages AIMS OF INTERVENTION It is about controlling emotions, which adversely affect the student, how do they react to particular situations? Do they have a cycle of destructive behaviour which they need help changing? Structured, so that they are presented with examples of particular scenarios and asked to work out the best responses to them. Basically we are looking to alter autonomic responses and replace them with more positive reactions to life’s events. FACILITATOR NOTES This is a straightforward programme on the one hand, a child with obvious anger issues, but in order that they don’t live with that label or indeed live up to that label it is a difficult programme. There are obviously references to anger, but I have tried to envelop it into different issues and aspects of life so that it is more oblique.REFERRAL CRITERIAOut bursts at staff or pupilsOutbursts involving injury to themselves or furniture (punching doors, glass etc)Swearing at staffEmotional outbursts at odds with the situationBASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTION SESSIONS1.
