Behaviours of concern can greatly affect the safety and quality of life of people with disability and the people that support them. In this one day workshop, we will be looking at behaviour as a form of communication and learn to ask questions such as:

  • What is this person trying to tell us?
  • How can we use this information to address their wants and needs?

By using strategies such as functional analysis and positive behaviour support, we hope that you will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of why people engage in behaviours of concern and how to use this information to improve the quality of life of the people you support.

Audience:

This one day workshop is suitable for staff and carers supporting people with disability.

Facilitators:

Clinical Professor Vivienne Riches is a registered psychologist, researcher and educator at the Centre for Disability Studies, Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney.

Sarah Wagstaff holds a B.A. (Psych)(Hons), M(Teach)(School Counselling) and is currently undertaking a Masters of Health Science (Developmental Disability). She has extensive experience supporting the behavioural needs of people with disability in various roles, including behavioural therapist, teacher, and school counsellor. During her years working as a teacher in specialised high school settings for students with psychosocial disability and intellectual disability, Sarah developed a first-hand understanding of the challenges involved when implementing strategies for people displaying behaviours of concern in ‘frontline’ situations.
