Reducing behavioural & emotional difficulties in schools is vital given their pervasiveness & long‑term consequences for academic failure, mental health & anti‑social behaviour. Consistent with National Research Priorities to promote proactive health & wellbeing effective research‑based positive behaviour for learning interventions will yield important educational & socio‑economic benefits by enriching learning, psychosocial adjustment, schooling success & life potential of young Australians. Research outcomes have the potential to seed success by generating new solutions to strengthen schooling; enable students to reach potential; build capacity at individual & community levels & contribute to national socio‑economic wellbeing.
