Welcome to this short course about Promoting Positive Behaviours.
This programme offers an opportunity to understand the importance of promoting positive behaviours whether in children, young people or adults and during the course, you will explore the legislation that supports the use of restrictive interventions, understand how to recognise changes in behaviour patterns (which can help to prevent the escalation of challenging behaviour) and also understand how individuals are affected by the experience of challenging behaviour.
As a result of completing this course, you will:
- be better equipped to recognise triggers and warning signs that a person’s behaviour is becoming more challenging
- understand behaviours and Positive Behavioural Support (PBS)
- identify where there may be a need for either de-escalation or intervention
- have considered best practice, strategies and Behavioural Support Plans
- have examined the effects on individuals who witness or become involved in an incident
As it will also be important to be able to recognise the importance of person-centred approaches, we will also consider the importance of responding in a way that promotes dignity and respect throughout (both before and after incidents).
