     $155 Understanding Acquired Brain Injury and behaviour change A guide to managing challenging behaviours by Sue Sloan This comprehensive manual provides useful, simple to understand information about why challenging behaviours occur, how to identify their triggers and strategies to deal with them. The manual provides an overview of how brain damage can alter behaviour, clear information for understanding how behaviour change occurs and for identifying the antecedents.  It describes an “ABC” model for analysing behaviour and developing pro-active strategies to manage the antecedents, the behaviour itself and the consequences.  Clear case studies are provided throughout to help see how these strategies can be applied.  This is an enormously valuable resource for clinicians and case managers Cost of $155 includes postage (within Australia), handling & GST. International customers can either purchase the Manual as a PDF or pay an additional $120 for courier
