Abstract:   (73 Views)
Emotional and behavioral difficulties in pupils are part of the everyday life at school. This paper explores teachers’ views and concerns about pupils’ emotional and behavioral difficulties, their perceptions of self-efficacy in dealing with them and their coping strategies. The sample of the study consisted of 82 secondary teachers from different disciplines, from one municipality of Greece with 56% of them being females. The participants completed a questionnaire with Likert-scale questions as well as questions following a vignette on pupils’ behavior problems. The results show that teachers recognize the different types of emotional and behavioral difficulties of pupils and attribute their causes to them and the family. Demographic variables such as sex, age, working teaching and experience with special needs teaching seem to affect teachers’ views and perceptions while speciality and level of education (graduate or postgraduate qualification) had no effect on teachers’ perceptions. © 2016 The Authors.
