Classroom Emotional Abuse

the forgotten dimension of safeguarding, child protection, and safer recruitment

Recent News

Self-Evaluation Questionnaires Available

The Teacher and Pupil Self-Evaluation questionnaires will be made available online at this website. They will be accessed from the left-hand menu of the home pages (and several other pages). Completing them and submitting your responses will help future research. The Teacher Self-Evaluation questionnaire will help all teachers to evaluate how they conduct classes. The Pupil Self-Evaluation questionnaire enable pupils and students to check their experiences in classes and lectures. Not all behaviours described in the questionnaires are abusive, but some are.

The questionnaires are temporarily not available while the website has been moved and is being rebuilt due to earlier hacker activity. The new website should be much more resilient against hacking.
