DISABILITY SECTOR TRAINING FUND IPSWICH WEST MORETON REGION

SUPPORTING INDIVIDUALS WITH COMPLEX AND CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR


Complex and challenging behaviours are often misunderstood and viewed as negative or disruptive behaviour. In this workshop participants will identify behaviour as a communication tool highlighting an unmet need, and examine behaviour as an interaction with others or an environment that may challenge staff and/or community understanding. Through reviewing past and present behaviour management techniques participants will understand the benefit of both proactive and reactive strategies, effective communication and managing their own behaviour in a crisis situation. Specific learning outcomes include:
