Psych4Schools offers online resources that endeavour to provide up-to-date practical advice and strategies for primary and junior secondary teachers, school leaders and other professionals.

Most classrooms have children who worry or concern their teacher. It is not reasonable for teachers or school leaders to be experts on the many childhood conditions, co-existing issues and family situations that impact on children and their learning. Psych4Schools provides the practical support and expert knowledge you need.

Working with Children ebooklets link student wellbeing and management with teaching and learning, providing information and practical teaching strategies to assist you to address individual needs.

Working with Parents and Working with Colleagues ebooklets demonstrate effective communication techniques to help you engage and work with adults more effectively.

Built on evidence-based learning, our resources have been reviewed and trialled by teachers, principals, school leaders, psychologists and other professionals in diverse school settings.
