Clare interviews Dr Emma Clarke, a writer, teacher, and teacher trainer specialising in behaviour.
After teaching in primary schools for almost 18 years, Emma now teaches on a primary training course. Her interests include approaches to managing behaviour that challenges in schools. She has presented her research nationally and internationally, as well as publishing both in books and peer-reviewed journals.
Emma talks about how to have respectful conversations at home - starting with the basics of body language. She explains the importance of showing children we're listening, and making sure that everyone in the family feels heard.
In this episode, Emma recommends the book Working with Children and Teenagers Using Solution Focused Approaches, by Judith Milner and Jackie Bateman.
