Prevention of behavioural problems in children

Research into the effectiveness of prevention programmes and the required competencies of primary school teachers

Publication date: 01 April 2016

Rotterdam has relatively many children of the primary school age with severe psychosocial problems. Aggression, rebellious behaviour and hyperactivity are among the most common psychosocial problems in this group. Important conditions for successful prevention of psychological problems for these children is knowing which prevention programmes are effective and which children need more intensive support and care. This study answers these questions.
