INSIGHTS into Children’s Temperament (INSIGHTS) is a comprehensive intervention that includes teacher, parent, and classroom programmes. With temperament (personality) theory as its foundation, INSIGHTS provides parents and teachers with a framework for appreciating the individual differences of children. INSIGHTS assists parents and teachers with replacing negative patterns of interaction and harsh disciplinary practices with responsive ones that match a child’s temperament. The programme enhances the children’s self-regulation by strengthening their empathy and problem-solving skills.
INSIGHTS in Jamaica is housed in School of Education, University of the West Indies, under the directorship of Dr Marcia Rainford.
