Event description

Description

Behaviours that others find challenging can reduce the likelihood of a person being able to participate in their community and can be dangerous for the person and others. So it’s really important that all people involved in the person’s life understand what’s behind challenging behaviours so they can work together to reduce these behaviours and get better outcomes for the person they support.

Topics Covered

Why some people might behave in ways that can be harmful to themselves, others or to property, or which make it hard to include them

What current research says are more effective ways to respond

Why there are many different approaches to behaviour and how to decide what’s best for the person you love or support

How families and services can get on the same page
