There are different types of unpredictable behaviour that can impact your daily work, and effective techniques to manage them. Which is the best technique to use? This course gives you the tools to be confident in your work.
Health and social care workers are often faced with difficult behaviour at work on the part of the individual.
It will equip you with the practical skills you need to exercise a deeper awareness of why an individual may react unpredictably to one-to-one interaction. When you can understand why an individual behaves in a certain way, you can manage their care more effectively.
During the session, you’ll cover:
What ‘positive behaviour support’ means and how it is caused
The different kinds of ‘positive behaviour support’ and the effect they may have on the individuals care
How a person’s thoughts and external circumstances influence behaviour
Ways to assess the behaviour of somebody you are working with
How to identify ‘positive behaviour support’ triggers and the best way to manage them
The clues to watch for when recognising escalation, and how to use distraction and de-escalation methods
The do’s and don’ts of managing ‘positive behaviour support' - key strategies to use in the moment
How to encourage and reward positive behaviour support - the techniques and tools that are available to you.
This half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
