Synopsis of workshop:
Positive behaviour support (PBS) is the recommended framework for addressing challenging behaviours and improving the quality of life of individuals with brain injury, with a number of intervention experiments demonstrating its effectiveness with this population. However, it seems the foundations of PBS are often misunderstood, which could result in interventions that are not consistent with its theory and practices. The purpose of this session is to provide a clear outline of the PBS framework, and discuss this in the context of community-based support following brain injury.
Allied health professionals (e.g., OTs, Speech Pathologists, Psychologists, Developmental Educators, Social Workers), GPs, support staff and families who want to learn more about PBS and its application in community-based rehabilitation/therapeutic settings.
