This opening chapter describes what the book does and also underlines the importance of skills, values and beliefs to the work of teaching assistants (TAs) and other support staff in schools and other educational settings in dealing with difficult behaviour from pupils. It is followed by an overview of current developments for TAs and their changing role plus a consideration of the value of the book to staff working towards Teacher Development Agency (TDA) standards. There is a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of being a Teaching Assistant when pupils are being disruptive which is illustrated by quotations from those who know best - the TAs themselves.
