Using happiness as an intervention in Behaviour Support Plans

Dates: TBC

When we design Behaviour Support Plans the focus is almost entirely on the negative aspects of someone’s behaviour and the impact it has. We design proactive strategies with the aim of reducing stress and anxiety and helping people to stay calm. 

This event will look at the work of positive psychologists like Martin Seligman and how we might use some of these ideas in a Positive Behaviour Support framework. 

We will also look at traditional quality of life indicators. This event is for people who have responsibility for developing behaviour support plans and would be interested in thinking about interventions that promote good feelings.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss current research and ideas and try out some tools that focus on wellbeing and think about how they might design and use interventions that promote positive feelings in the people they support.

This course will help people to meet competencies 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, and 3.9 for direct care staff in the PBS Competency framework >
