Abstract: This study assesses the effects of an inservice training program on the perceived self-efficacy of first- and second-grade teachers. Fifty-six regular class teachers of the Commission scolaire de la Capitale participated in the study. Using a quasi experimental research design, repeated measures anova (one pretest and two posttest) were performed to evaluate the effects of the training program on the self-efficacy beliefs of the participants. The experimental group took part in training activities focusing on developing their knowledge and skills in managing classroom behaviour problems. The Gestion Positive des Situations de classe (GPS) training took place over an eight-month period at a rate of one three-hour workshop every five weeks. During the training, complementary readings, in-class experiments, and discussions with peers were proposed as support to participants. Results indicate that program participation had positive effect on teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs regarding managing student behavior and eliciting principals’ support. Moreover, an interaction effect is obtained on teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs to elicit principals’support between group and time (pretest and first posttest).
