Positive Behaviour Support
Duration 1 Day
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is an evidence-based approach to supporting people who may display behaviours of concern, that others might find challenging. PBS aims to improve quality of life as an intervention and an outcome. It aims to reduce the use of physical interventions and restrictive practices, and to increase positive, alternative behaviours.
This course will help you to understand why people behave in challenging ways, and will outline how to prevent such behaviour, whilst keeping yourself, colleagues and the people you support safe.
By the end of this course, delegates will have covered:
What contributes to and causes challenging behaviour How to promote positive behaviour Key points from the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and national policy How behaviour escalates and what to do as it does Policy and principles of restriction and physical intervention The importance of controlling our own behaviour Practice in relation to PBS
