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.

Books and Services

There is very little material readily available to assist with the emotional abuse aspect of safeguarding training. We can help with that:

  • many schools have whole of school training attended by teachers and perhaps governors and other school workers - we have training materials available to supplement your normal safeguarding whole of school training;
  • many local authorities provide courses for safeguarding - we have courses available to cover the emotional abuse aspects of safeguarding, which can be delivered as stand-alone courses, or to supplement existing courses;
  • schools or school consortia may like to have a training session about emotional abuse in the classroom - we can do that;
  • schools or school consortia may like to have a training session for teachers to use the self-assessment tools in this book - we can run sessions for such groups of teachers;
  • a school, or school consortium, may wish to provide pupils with a self-assessment workshop - we can conduct a session to find out what your pupils really feel, and obtain input for management and planning.
