Event Details

About the workshop:

In this workshop articipants will be encouraged to understand more about what drives behaviour and the situations in which people with ‘challenging behaviours’ find themselves. Ann will cover ways to develop strategies with the person, so that, regardless of the level of their disability, they can better understand the motivations, effects and consequences of their behaviour.

This workshop will involve information sharing, practical tips and strategies and learning through stories. It will not provide a recipe to ‘fix’ the person.

Topics Include:

• Defining and describing challenging behaviour
• Communication and its role in behaviour
• Consideration of internal and external drivers of behaviour
• Understanding our part in the behaviour of others
• Developing a personal style which is not punishing


About the Presenter:

Ann GreerAnn Greer
has over fifteen years professional experience working with people whose behaviours are seen as challenging.  As well as drawing on the teachings of Donnellan, LaVigna and Willis, most of her learning and understandings have come from her greatest teachers, people with disabilities themselves. Ann is the Manager of Community Connection Inc. in Townsville and mother of three adults, two of whom live with disability. 

Who Should Attend?

This workshop will be of interest to anyone supporting a person labelled as challenging – whether as a parent, family member, friend, or in a work role.


Discussion Day for Families

In Brisbane on Friday 17th November there will be an opportunity for families to spend further time with Ann in a small group session to continue the discussion and apply the learnings to their personal circumstances.

Attendance on Day 1 is necessary for participation in Day 2. Participants may have attended Day 1 in previous years. See separate flyer for more info and to register for Day 2.
