Behaviour Change

Re-formulating ‘challenging behaviour’ and behaviour change through praise and reward.

This course will support you to understand the relationship between complex needs and ‘challenging behaviour’. Through considering the context that challenging behaviour unfolds within you will extend your knowledge about the factors that trigger and maintain difficulties, how praise and reward can effectively be deployed, and how to avoid inadvertently reinforcing distress or unhelpful patterns of care seeking. This understanding will lead to practical skills in formulating the function and communications behind behaviour that challenges, increasing confidence in creating positive strength-based interventions and support plans.

Length: Four modules, duration: 30 - 45 mins of study per module.
