The aim is to gain an explicit understanding of the factors which trigger, influence and maintain the students’ actions and behaviour. The model includes a range of work principles which demonstrate how one should proceed in order to arrive at a decision about what should be done. The teachers themselves evolve the measures which should be used in order to develop good learning environments. The measures should be directed towards reducing the importance of the factors which trigger and maintain problems in the school.

Work with the LP-model does not follow traditional strategies which involve trying out a method or a particular measure in the school. The measures which the teachers will implement will be developed locally as a result of an analysis of the challenges and conditions in the particular class/group or school. This is in accordance with research on how development work should be carried out in school.
