School-based interventions involving teacher and/or child training have been shown to benefit teacher practices and to prevent conduct problems and improve children?s social and emotional competence in developed countries; however, we are aware of no reports from a developing country.We conducted a pilot study of the Incredible Years Teacher Training programme and a curriculum unit on social and emotional skills based on concepts and activities drawn from the Incredible Years Dina Dinosaur Classroom Curriculum to determine if this approach is appropriate for use with Jamaican pre-school teachers and children.
