This event will introduce the key components of Positive Behaviour Support and the values and science that underpin it as well as helping participants to identify restrictive practices in their own workplace. The potential causes and function of behaviours of concern will be covered as well as the impact of personal attitudes values and beliefs on the quality of support that is offered.
This programme covers the essential knowledge needed by anyone who provides direct support and implements behaviour support strategies or a behaviour support plan. It builds on a basic understanding of the values base and science of PBS and extends the knowledge gained at Foundation level.
Participants will explore the purpose and essential elements of a behaviour support plan and learn what they need to do to support functional assessments. The programme also covers implementing a range of behaviour support strategies including proactive strategies such as teaching new skills as well as reactive strategies.
