CALM’s Core Theory Course will help you understand behaviours that challenge, and how to reduce – and prevent – those behaviours over time. With a focus on prevention and reduction of restrictive responses, CALM Core Theory will also teach you how to confidently manage a crisis if and when it occurs.
This 2-day course is an in-depth examination of best practice in attachment based and trauma informed positive behaviour support (PBS). This course offers participants an opportunity to reflect on and explore their everyday work practice and how this aligns to best practice principles based on theory and professional frameworks. This training includes how to develop whole person support plans based on an individualised assessment.
Language matters: Why we use “Behaviour that Challenges” and not “Challenging Behaviour”
Language is powerful – it can both label people unhelpfully and lead the way we think. At CALM we consciously use the term ‘distress presenting as behaviour that challenges’ as it reminds us that behaviour itself is often an expression of emotion or a form of communication. This is human rights respecting and puts the person at the heart of our thoughts and responses.
