Working Positively with Behaviours that Challenge - Limerick Campus
This is an intensive training course specifically for professionals working with children/adults who present with challenging behaviour.
This Programme is a Special Purpose Award of 10 credits at Masters level and is designed to develop an understanding of non-aversive, Positive Behaviour Support and to provide professionals with comprehensive knowledge and skills in assessing the causes of challenging behaviour and developing, implementing and evaluating a comprehensive behaviour support plan.
This programme will be of interest to people who work with/live with people who present with Challenging Behaviour. It is an intensive 10-month training programme which involves 8 full days of training and practical/academic assignments to be carried out in the learners' daily setting. The programme supports learners to develop and implement comprehensive, non-aversive behavioural support plans with people to help increase their quality of life and reduce the need for challenging behaviour in the short term and the long term. The style of teaching on the course is particular case teaching, which means the learner is required to carry out an actual behaviour support plan with someone who is presenting with behavioural challenges. The learner will also need to identify a workplace supervisor to monitor the implementation of the behaviour support plan.
