Tina has produced another book based on her work as a behaviour support teacher. This is an ideal resource for use as part of a PHSE programme with a whole class or smaller group work. It is specifically aimed at students who appear to be experiencing unacceptable levels of stress in their lives and who require support in order to understand, acknowledge and cope with specific stressors/sources of stress.
