PDF Version of the Understanding ABI and Behaviour change manual.
Following acquired brain injury, the impact of challenging behaviour on social relationships and community participation can be devastating. Rebuilding participation relies on the management of challenging behaviour and the development of prosocial replacement behaviours. Reading this practical resource will help you understand how, and why, behaviour changes following acquired brain injury. You will gain the knowledge to create positive behaviour support plans to minimise challenging behaviours. Importantly, strategies to embed positive behaviour support within everyday routines as a means to develop prosocial relationships and build role participation are outlined. The resource is suitable for anyone living or working with a person with ABI and provides numerous case examples that assist the reader to understand how to apply the knowledge of positive behaviour support to a wide range of everyday situations.
