This is the latest version of the free, easy to access and good quality online PBS Awareness Course that provides a straightforward introduction to PBS. It was developed 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. Feedback has been very positive. Numerous organisations use it 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.

The new 2019 updated version solves some technical problems and contains new updated brief content on reducing restrictive practice, active support, accessible descriptions of PBS and more. The new resources section provides free downloadable key documents and access to other PBS resources.

A new optional online assessment produces a certificate to evidence successful completion.

If you have problems accessing the course, try again using a different browser, such as Google Chrome or Firefox, unblock or allow pop-ups, flash and automatic downloads—or get help from your local IT support. We hope you find it useful and welcome any feedback.
