Course Description

This eLearning course aims to increase and refresh your knowledge about working with individuals who display ‘behaviours that challenge’. Please note: the course was formally known as ‘Challenging Behaviour’.

We begin by defining the term ‘behaviour that challenges’. We explore the functions of these behaviours and the reasons that individuals may display them. The Behaviours that Challenge course explains the legal and government policy framework for dealing with behaviour that challenges. In particular, the use of restrictive interventions and positive behavioural support (PBS). Additionally, the course describes the context within which these behaviours may occur. These include environmental factors, slow and fast triggers and the role of reinforcement. Investigate the use of proactive, active and reactive interventions. As is the importance of supporting an individual and others following any incidents. Finally, you will support to analyse the antecedent, behaviour and consequences of the behaviour. Investigate the ABC model of working and help to understand the importance of reflection when working with behaviour that challenges.
