Without effective behaviour management, a positive and productive classroom environment is impossible to achieve. Finding the most effective techniques for producing behaviour change and preventing the development of classroom discipline problems is a moderately stressful part of the professional lives of many teachers, and a major reason for job dissatisfaction. The need for confidence regarding the impact of particular strategies is important to teachers given that the ability to manage students effectively is a critical component of their sense of professional identity.

This presentation focuses on the results of attempts to introduce the Developmental Management approach into all schools in the Northern Metropolitan Region of Victoria, Australia, as part of the 'train the trainer', AiZ project. The rationale underlying the 15 recommendations for teacher behaviour implicit in the DMA are highlighted and examples of schools' attempts to introduce elements of the DMA into primary and secondary classrooms are discussed.
