This course will enable staff to understand what is meant by Challenging Behaviour, why behaviours occur and find the least restrictive ways to reduce the behaviour.
The course is 6 hours that can be offered as a standalone certificated course.
Challenging Behaviour is not always aggressive or violent. And these behaviours are still communicating a need for something.
By understanding what the behaviour is trying to communicate, we can work the person to develop more appropriate, or positive ways to meed that need.
Positive Behaviour Support is a person-centred framework for providing long term sustained support to a person likely to, or already demonstrating challenging behaviours, in such a way so to promote their freedom, choices, inclusion in care and equal opportunities.
