About the workshops:

  • The workshops will guide you through the basics of Positive Behaviour Support – how to understand behaviour and plan individualised support strategies using a mix of activities and discussions.
  • They are a two-part workshop set, so you ideally need to be able to commit to both sessions.
  • The workshops are delivered by a Positive Behaviour Support trainer and family carer co-trainer.

Booking is essential, please email [email protected]  or call 01424 423555 to book a space. Please note when booking please ensure you can make both workshop dates.

Project Art Works supports the approach to Positive Behaviour Support explored in this training session which focusses on making changes to the environment or to the behaviour of those supporting the individual.

Challenging Behaviour Foundation describe PBS as ‘a framework for developing an understanding of behaviour that challenges rather than a single therapeutic approach, treatment or philosophy. It is based on an assessment of the broad social, physical and individual context in which the behaviour occurs, and uses this information to develop interventions.
The overall goal of PBS is to improve the person’s quality of life and of those around them, thus reducing the likelihood of challenging behaviour occurring in the first place.
When a person receives PBS it is unlikely to come from just one individual, one professional group or one service. Families, carers, professionals, service providers and commissioners need to work together and each play their part in supporting that person.’
