Programme details

An intensive programme for practitioners with some practical experience of positive behaviour support, who would like to extend their knowledge and support the implementation of a positive behaviour support approach within their forensic service.

This 4 day programme includes 3 days of residential training and a 1-day workplace assignment follow up six months later. The residential training will provide participants with the opportunity to discuss the current context of PBS and the specific elements of a PBS approach, as well as what should be in a behaviour support plan, restrictive practices and how to embed PBS.

The focus will be on supporting colleagues in the workplace to understand the main concepts and make changes to practice that will impact positively on the people being supported.

The programme will also cover the principles of coaching and participants will prepare and present a session plan for a key element of PBS.

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.
