March 2, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

About the workshop:

In this workshop participants will be encouraged to understand more about the situations in which people with challenging behaviour find themselves and to explore how they can best respond to support the person.

The workshop will cover ways to develop strategies with the person, so that, regardless of the level of their disability, they can better understand the motivations, effects and consequences of their behaviour. This workshop will involve information sharing, practical tips and strategies.
