Utilising the Positive Behaviour Support Approach with Behaviour Zen Online Course
Description - Parents, teachers, support workers and other professionals are not always equipped with the knowledge, skills and tools to positively support individuals with challenging emotional and behavioural difficulties. Divided into three modules, this online course will guide you through the application of Behaviour Zen, an invaluable tool based on the evidence-based method of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). In Module One you'll determine why the individual might be engaging in emotional and behavioural difficulties by conducting a Functional Behavioural Analysis. In Module Two you'll design a comprehensive management plan based on the analysis findings by profiling the individual’s escalation course to identifying effective responses to difficult situations. In Module Three you'll put together a comprehensive prevention plan that aims to minimise or avoid the behavioural and emotional difficulties by setting up the environment and activities for success, interacting with the individual in constructive ways, and helping the individual learn effective methods for behaving and managing their emotions. On completion of this course, you'll have the tools to guide your individual through a transformative journey that will inspire positive change.
