Abstract

This article presents the findings of a one-year research project carried out by researchers from the University of Strathclyde in one Scottish region and involving 12 comprehensive secondary schools. The main focus of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of support systems for young people who displayed challenging behaviour. The researchers examined the systems in place from the perspective of all stakeholders including teachers, pupils, parents and key personnel in other agencies including social work, community education and psychological services. The focus is upon the inter-agency dimension and in particular the barriers to inter-agency partnership, which impact upon effectiveness of support systems. The overall aim is to provide food for thought and suggest possible ways forward.
