Who Should Attend
This introduction into positive behaviour support training has been designed for front-line workers and their team leaders or line managers – people who are dealing with concerning behaviour and want to learn ways to support behaviour change, to understand their role, as well as who they can contact to get support for sustainable positive behaviour change.
This one-day training course will provide the learner with an introduction to positive behaviour support (PBS) , and how it connects directly to people with a cognitive impairment and the criminal justice system, through an evidence-based approach.
Positive behaviour support explores why the person has a need to engage in that behaviour. It’s about learning how to support the person so they no longer have a need to engage in challenging behaviour.
Difficult behaviours are messages that can tell us important things about a person and the quality of his or her life. People who sometimes engage in challenging behaviours are actually telling us something is wrong or missing, and they need help to make it better. The focus of the course is to build support for people with a cognitive disability and the people who support them.
