Positive Approach to Working with Children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties is a Manual that offers an innovative approach to support children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. The Manula was prepared within the frame of the Positive Approach to Working with Children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties Project implemented by Partners Bulgaria Foundation with the support of the OAK Foundation and Tulip Foundation.
The content is divided in thematic modules including theoretical background, practical exercises and attachments representing instrumentarium for practitioners. The materials are structured in a way that facilitates the delivery of training for professionals in the field of education and social care.
In the course of our work, the team of Partners Bulgaria Foundation developed a methodology for work with children with emotional and behavioural difficulties based on child protection principles. Making use of foreign good practices as well as based on the practical experience of our teams at the Resource Centres in Samokov and Dupnitsa, the authors synthesised and elaborated this very practical model. It presents both the councelling and practical work of professionals working with children. The activities involve work with families and are useful for services in the areas of education, health and social services.
