TRAINING TEACHERS TO INTERACT WITH STUDENTS SHOWING DEVIANT BEHAVIOR: ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENT APPROACHES

Abstract:

The paper analyzes various approaches to training teachers to interact with students demonstrating deviations in behavior. The complexity and inconsistency of the current situation with personality socialization exacerbates the problem of deviant behavior in children and adolescents. The aim of this research was to consider urgent issues of preparing teachers for working with children showing deviant behavior. The works of leading experts and psychologists were reviewed; the history of research in this area was analyzed; and the main problems and the pro-posed solutions were noted. The theoretical and practical achievements of educators were closely considered. The findings indicate the future prospects of psychological and pedagogical research on the topic and support the idea to improve the training of educators who teach children with behavioral abnormalities.
