Event description

Description

Following positive feedback from last year, we have modified our workshop and holding it again in 2017!

Behaviour support interventions - workshop aimed at neuropsychology students, registrars and early career clinicians.

Each week a primary case study will be used as the vehicle to convey the practicalities and considerations of community-based behaviour support intervention.

Through these cases we will practice behaviour assessment, behaviour-focussed intervention strategies, intervention protocols, developing a behaviour support plan, and other good stuff. In the third week various vignettes will be used to demonstrate ethical issues and practical resolutions.

Dates for sessions 1, 2, 3: 31.8.2017 7.9.2017 14.9.2017
