This paper will attempt to assess the importance of humour in successful classroom and school interventions with students affected by Emotional or Behavioural Difficulties.
(1) Existing Literature will be reviewed in order to define the scope of the study and to define what interventions through "humour" consist of.
(2) Methodology will be set out in great detail and constitute a crucial part of this research article as it is felt that it is methodological considerations that have hindered data collection in this field: difficulties in defining the target interventions, in recording the use of humour during interventions and in drawing conclusions applicable in a universal context.
(3) Data collection: the paper will review data collected in teachers round table sessions and through student questionnaires.
(4) The article will map out the enormous potential for further research in this area and its value within an eco-systemic theoretical model.
