Seminar Overview
This Seminar will help you look at positive ways to change behaviour that may be seen as challenging, or limits access to community inclusion. It provides a balance between behaviour theory (including Positive Behaviour Support), and practical tools for managing complex and challenging behaviours focusing particularly on how to manage behaviours in a crisis. This seminar highlights the importance of utilising proactive strategies and techniques in behaviour management that assist in maintaining baseline behaviours.
