Evolution of behaviour management: Next Steps

    Having worked as a leader of behaviour management within primary, secondary and FE for a long time, I am aware that current practices and techniques are supported by theories of old; motivation (Mazlow 1954, Hertzberg 1959 and McClelland 1961), behaviour (Skinner 1974, Bigge 1976, Emmer 1980 and Canters 1976) to name a few.

    All of these are well founded, of course, and are often re-invented by contemporary sources like Rogers, Cowley and now Bennett but WHAT IS NEW? What forward thinking is out there? What are people trying?

    Having completed several deep dives into behaviour across a number of education settings it is becoming increasingly clear that staff and children are not responding to charts, the issue of card or consequences such as detentions and timeouts. People are not the social creatures (possibly wrong word here) they used to be and seek social gratification through technology, should our techniques reflect this change?

    Sorry, just the ramblings over an over active brain on lock-down!
