Available to Purchase for Students This full-day workshop was presented by Dr. Alinka Fisher on 4th September 2019. Synopsis of session: 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. Learning objectives: • To gain a basic understanding of a PBS framework for supporting individuals with ABI • To consider the relevance and applications of PBS in community-based rehabilitation/therapeutic settings. Audience: This workshop is aimed at 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.

Our purpose is to bring together a multidisciplinary society of researchers, educators, and clinical practitioners to improve the lives of people with conditions impacting the brain and their support networks
