    Lindsay O'neill-brown completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    This course was very informative. I felt like I learned so much about behaviour management. However, I was disappointed that I didn't receive a certificate after completing the course unless I paid for it.

    Eye opening and enriching course, I have bagged a lot of de escalation skills and I look forward to putting them into practise. The interplay of the emotional and rational minds and how they affect the child's security and learning and our informed deliberate use of both minds to manage the class was very helpful.
