Positive Behaviour Support - An Introduction

Positive Behaviour Support - An Introduction

This one day workshop will give participants a solid understanding of positive behaviour support (PBS).

Positive Behaviour Support is the framework at the heart of D.ESCAL8™ training; delivering all care in a supportive and positive way even in times of crisis when individuals can display sings of distress.

An individualised approach is embedded within the workshop delivery giving supporters and staff the grounding that PBS is at the centre of all care they provide and in all the work they do.

The training teaches and discusses primary and secondary prevention strategies, with the overall principle that all prevention strategies should be carefully selected and reviewed to ensure that they do not constrain opportunities or have an adverse effect on the welfare or the quality of life of anyone involved.

Aim:

Participants understand positive behaviour support (PBS) and the reasons to work within this framework at all times.

Objectives:

Participants will:

  • gain an understanding of the content of Positive Behavioural Support Competence Framework.
  • understand the definition of and the concept of positive behaviour support
  • understand primary and secondary preventions and be able to give examples
  • understand the factors that contribute to the development of behaviours that are a problem for others
  • understand the functions of behaviour

OVERVIEW OF THE POSITIVE BEHAVIOURAL SUPPORT COMPETENCE FRAMEWORK

The BILD Code of Practice defines positive behaviour support as ‘a framework; that enhances the quality of life for the individual and others involved in their life for developing an understanding of challenging behaviour that is developed with full inclusion of the individual and their family/advocate to develop, implement and evaluate the effectiveness of a personalised and enduring system of support.

D.ESCAL8™ teach carers that the following are paramount:

  • We must NOT try to control other people, but rather support them in their own behaviour change process.
  • There is a reason behind most behaviour that seems a problem to others, such as meeting an unmet need.
  • Every person has unique strengths and talents that can be utilised.
  • Everyone must be treated with compassion and respect regardless of their behaviour.
  • Everyone is entitled to quality of life and effective service.
  • Knowledge and commitment about how to provide support for positive behaviour can make a big difference.
  • Positive responses will be more effective than coercion and punishment.
