‘Challenging behaviour’ comes in many forms and varies dependent on situation and environment and also the personal feelings of the individuals involved.

Our training in the subject of managing difficult behaviours and aggression all follow the  Able 6-Stage Target Model which is based on the principles of positive behavioural support, pro-active and responsive strategies and de-escalation. It is a person centred approach suitable for both adult and child environments and adapts to fits all forms of environments and behaviours.

This training is currently taught to staff around the country to assist those working with adults with children who display challenging behaviour. The Able system is praised for its simple but effective principles, its person centred approach and its adaptable design.

This half or full day course will enable participants to explore the issues that lead to challenging behaviour and is tailored to your environment and needs. They will learn:

  • How to identify challenging behaviour.
  • The causes of challenging behaviour.
  • The different stressors that can contribute to challenging behaviour.
  • How challenging behaviour can escalate.

Delegates will learn how to respond to rather than react to challenging behaviour through techniques including:

  • Behavioural analysis.
  • Behavioural planning.
  • Reinforcing and rewarding behaviour that is incompatible with challenging behaviour.
  • Appropriate use of praise and extinguishing behaviours.

The course includes the use of clear communication, de-escalation techniques and problem solving with the individual to create win-win outcomes, as well as what to do when faced with danger.

It is ideal for any care staff working in an child care environment.
