The term "challenging behaviour" has been used to refer to the "difficult" or "problem" behaviours which may be shown by person or adults.
Why does it happen?
The first point to make is that there is no simple answer to this question. It is helpful to remember, if the behaviour has just arisen or worsened, the possibility that it reflects some kind of biological or emotional disturbance.
Delegates to the Challenging Behaviours Training Course will benefit from having knowledge of how to recognise signs and symptoms of challenging behaviour within their working environment.
Delegates will also be able to identify causes and deal with situations using simple interventions to diffuse difficult and potentially aggressive situations.
The aims of this training course are for learners to understand;
Theories and function of behaviour
Why do people behave as they do?
What actually is 'challenging' behaviour?
Preventing challenging behaviour
Strategies for managing challenging behaviour
Challenging our own assumptions about people and their behaviour
