PBS Awareness Course
This updated, free, easy to access, good quality e-learning course provides a straightforward introduction to Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). It was created by by Dr Edwin Jones and Professor Kathy Lowe, from Swansea Bay Health Board and BILD.
Originally commissioned by the Department of Health as part of the Positive and Proactive workforce initiative in 2014, the course has been widely used in health and social care. It explains PBS, putting values into practice, how behaviour works and PBS interventions. Numerous organisations use this course as induction and refresher PBS training. The course takes about 3 or 4 hours to complete and can be done in small bite-size chunks to suit your learning style.
This updated 2019 version solves some technical problems and contains some updated content on reducing restrictive practices, active support, accessible descriptions of PBS and more.
