Webinar: Responding Well to People with ‘Challenging Behaviour’
August 11 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
This webinar is designed as an introduction to the concepts that Ann covers in her full day workshop on the same topic. Ann will encourage webinar participants to understand what might influence people’s behaviour and to consider the situations which people with ‘challenging behaviour’ can find themselves.
Participants will also be asked to consider how their own responses can impact on the person.
Registrations close midday on Monday the 10th August.

Topics covered will include:
- Defining and describing challenging behaviour
- Communication and its role in behaviour
- Understanding our part in the behaviour of others
- Avoiding punishments and developing proactive approaches
