PBS Animation - Behaviour happens for a reason
An introduction to PBS and Trauma Informed Care—creating holistic behaviour support for children and adults impacted by trauma

A BILD CPD Learning and Development Day

19 September 2017, Birmingham

This workshop provides an introduction to the common factors and developmental impacts of trauma across the lifespan. It provides a practical overview of how PBS can be delivered to support healing and growth for traumatized children and adults. Children and adults who need intensive care and support are often more vulnerable and therefore more likely to confront traumatic experiences. 

For many in care, the impact of past trauma can increase the likelihood of continual re-traumatisation unless carers are equipped to counteract these effects. 

Positive Behaviour support is an evidence based framework that helps us look behind presenting behaviours of concern to find out their meaning or purpose for the person. Knowledge about traumatic stress and its potential impacts can better equip practitioners to develop holistic positive behaviour support plans that more effectively meet people's needs and improve their quality of life. 


Aims of the course:

This workshop provides an introduction to the common factors and developmental impacts of trauma across the lifespan. It provides a practical overview of how PBS can be delivered to support healing and growth for traumatized children and adults. 

Children and adults who need intensive care and support are often more vulnerable and therefore more likely to confront traumatic experiences. 

For many in care, the impact of past trauma can increase the likelihood of continual re-traumatisation unless carers are equipped to counteract these effects. 


Learning Outcomes:

On this programme participants will gain skills and knowledge that will help them to:

  • Develop an understanding of how trauma may impact on wellbeing and behavior
  • Describe how and why a positive behavior support framework can include trauma informed approaches
  • Reflect on how an underpinning knowledge of trauma can enhance their own practice and the quality of support  they offer to the specific individuals they work with
  • Think about how trauma informed care and strategies can  fit into a positive behavior support plan and support wellbeing and quality of life 
  • Access a number of tools and resources to develop further understanding 

The course leaders will be Sarah Leitch, CAPBS Development Manager, and Stacey Riberdy, a Trauma informed Psychotherapist.
