Suggesting a resilient and systemic oriented psychodynamic model to include students with behavioural problems: Theoretical issues and practical challenges

Elias Kourkoutas, Angie Hart


This paper presents an overview of available research data on the functioning of children with behavioural problems, and also discusses school-based risk and protective factors, and school problems in children with conduct problems. Additionally, emphasis has been placed on the presentation of key features of a psychoeducational counselling and psychodynamic resilient based intervention model which aims to address disruptive and disturbing behaviours within the school setting in partnership with school staff and in a systemic pesrpective. A case vignette is presented in order to better illustrate the basic tenets of this model.
