Managing challenging behaviour following brain injury

All day
The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability
West Hill, Putney, London, SW15 3SW
This one day course is open to anyone working with individuals with a brain injury who may wish to increase their skills and knowledge of managing behaviours that challenge. It offers a theoretical and practical introduction to the positive behaviour support approach, which is highly effective and rewarding for those clinicians applying the methods in a range of settings. By the end of the course attendees will:
  • Have an understanding of the possible causes of challenging behaviour after a brain injury.
  • Be able to describe the possible functions of challenging behaviour - Why is it happening and what is it telling us?
  • Have an understanding of the development of both pro-active (preventative) and reactive strategies.
  • Be able to appropriately select and use a range of verbal and non-verbal strategies to prevent or respond to challenging behaviours.
  • Be able to identify methods that can be incorporated into the clients’ environment that can lead to the reduction of the incidence of challenging behaviour.
  • Be proficient in the completion of documentation of challenging behaviour (e.g. ABC’s) and understand the purpose of collecting data.
  • Have an understanding of how debriefing and regular staff support mechanisms may help teams working with people with behaviours that challenge.
