Proactive Approaches to Challenging Behaviour in a LD Setting

Duration

1 day

Course Overview


Most people who work in learning disability services will have come across the term 'challenging behaviour' - but sadly, it's often misunderstood. Staff need to look behind the label and discover the reason for behaviours - once we understand why someone behaves the way they do, we can help them to find other ways to meet the need.
This course aims to increase understanding of the meanings behind behaviours and offer some practical strategies that might help you as a member of staff, whilst improving the quality of life for the people you support.

Course Content

  • The challenging behaviour label and the impact that it has on the individual
  • The function of behaviours
  • Proactive and active strategies
  • The law in relation to self defence and physical restraint'
  • Positive behaviour support

Methods of Delivery


The course uses a range of training methods to provide variety and engagement including: trainer presentation, PowerPoint presentations, flipchart work, group work and discussion, case studies and practical exercises. Delegates will be encouraged to share their own experiences and perspectives throughout. The training is supported by comprehensive learner notes.
