THE IMPORTANCE OF TEACHERS’ HOLISTIC APPROACH TO WORKING WITH CHILDREN WITH BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS
Today's modern school, globalization and the development of technology, bring great
challenges, not only for teachers, but for the whole society. Problems in children's behavior are a serious social and psychological problem. People who follow children’s development and want them to change are those who are constantly improving, applying the key concepts of holistic education, until they see the change.
The purpose of this paper is to highlight the importance of a holistic approach, in which the teacher is not only an educator but also a companion and a facilitator, one that helps and facilitates the learning process (Farbes, 1996). It is important that we monitor the child's development from all aspects. Encouraging children for positive development and creativity, seeing them as decision makers in their environment, are just some of the elements of applying holism.
