Positive Behaviour Support (DS)


Expression may come in the form of a behaviour rather than a clear verbal or visual message. These behaviours may be easily recognised and managed but, at times, interpreting the message behind the behaviour may be challenging.

This course gives a general overview of the concepts around positive behaviour support and how support workers can equip themselves with tools to achieve successful outcomes.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Understand behaviour as a form of communication
  • Identify behaviours of concern
  • Identify and categorise triggers of potentially harmful behaviours
  • Comprehend and follow a Behaviour Support Plan (BSP)
  • Apply strategies to provide positive support

CPD Value: 0.50

This course offers a fundamental introduction to the theory. It is advised that the learner complement this with a practical demonstration.
