Therapeutic Thinking

Therapeutic Thinking is an approach to behaviour which:

  • supports staff to create clear behaviour policies
  • focuses on to how to support all pupils’ emotional wellbeing and mental health
  • helps to understand children’s behaviour and respond in an inclusive way that promotes change

The approach is school-led. It is based on training and information built on best practice, policy and plans.

The aim is for schools, and the services that support them, to base their inclusive practice on Therapeutic Thinking principles.
