Positive Behaviour Support Model is designed to provide frontline staff with highly useable and practical skills to develop positive support plans for those with behaviour of concern.
This programme can be conducted over 4 or 5 days. When run as a 5 day programme course participants will complete a Functional Assessment Tool and develop a Positive Behaviour Support Plan during this programme.
While Positive behaviour support (PBS) is not a simple answer to the complex reasons why people show behaviours of concern there is a belief that the best behaviour support happens when the behaviour is not happening; hence the strong emphasis on proactive strategies.
PBS is based on decreasing behaviours of concern and improving the person’s quality of life. Positive behaviour support planning tells us the best way to work with an individual who shows behaviours of concern and gives us ways to improve the quality of life for the person and does not just deal with behaviour, therefore it can add realistic goals for service users.
The programme helps organisations move away from the use of restrictive practices and move towards practices which are in line with HIQA standards, Safety and Health Act, The Charter of Human Rights and The Declaration of Human Rights.
Supports Organisations Compliance with HIQA Regulation 7 Positive behavioural support.
Throughout the programme the course participant will complete a functional assessment tool which is used to collate valuable information which informs our understanding of the person’s behaviour and provides vital information from which they can develop proactive and reactive responses to the person’s behaviour, which is consistent and within our humanistic value base.
Functional Behavioural Analysis (FBA) is a reviewing relevant information about why they behave in the manner they do and helps us to understand how their diagnosis impacts on their daily lives and in particular, how the behavior is influenced by environmental factors or events that consistently predict or result from a person engaging in behaviour of concern.
Learn to develop a PBS Plan using the four types of strategies that constitute Positive Behaviour Support:
CPD is any activity that contributes to a professional’s learning and development. It can be as diverse as completing a course, reflecting on work practices through supervision or researching a new technique or reading a related article. The activity (i.e. action) can be viewed as CPD, as long as it enables the Social Care Worker to apply this learning through reflection or practical application in their professional life.
