Mission Control: 

A Behaviour Management Workshop for Allied Health Professionals

  • Do you lack confidence when working with clients who engage in behaviours of concern?
  • Do you have clients that you find hard to motivate or engage?
  • Do you ever feel out of control of your sessions because of a client’s behaviour?
  • Do you worry that your sessions with some clients aren’t as productive as they could be?  
  • Do you have clients that are making minimal progress because their parents have trouble getting them to cooperate with homework?

 We’ve all been there.  With the NDIS rolling out, we are seeing more clients with behaviours of concern. Behaviours such as aggression, lack of cooperation, and rigidity can interfere with a client’s access to valuable therapeutic opportunities. It can feel disheartening to know that your client needs your professional input, but that you are unable to break through the barrier of behaviour.  

We are here to help! Using the functional behaviour assessment framework, we will teach you to develop person-centred strategies to reduce the behaviours that challenge.  This helps you ensure that you are making the most out of every session. You will learn how to:

1)   develop a strong therapeutic rapport with your clients

2)   maximise engagement and participation, and

3)   improve efficiency with the acquisition of new skills. 

This information packed, one-day workshop will incorporate didactic learning, case studies, workshop exercises, video reviews and role play, focusing on a paediatric caseload. The workshop is appropriate for any allied health professional with two or more years’ experience working with children with disabilities.  We will give you the skills, resources and knowledge to:

  • Collect data/information on a client’s behaviour patterns (including ABC and scatterplot data)
  • Analyse that data to develop a function hypothesis
  • Develop a function-based, positive behaviour support plan to implement in your session to reduce behaviour and increase engagement 
  • Set clear and achievable goals around participation and engagement
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your plan
  • Troubleshoot, modify and refine your plan to get the desirable results
  • Identify how and when to ‘get help’ and refer on as appropriate 

In addition, you will come away with a helpful resource pack filled with cheat sheets and data sheets.  

Kristin will also give you lots of top tips and tricks for:

  • Building rapport with tricky clients
  • Effectively using visual schedules, timers and token boards
  • Selecting resources and materials to engage your client, including her favourite sensory toys and games that kids can’t resist!

Morning/Afternoon Tea provided. 

DISCLAIMER: Given the brevity of the workshop, content is NOT in itself adequate for someone to become a behaviour support practitioner nor it is sufficient for you to write behaviour support plans to be implemented by third parties.
