Behaviour That Challenges Awareness

This course gives a comprehensive overview of behaviour that challenges, including recognising and de-escalating behaviours as they develop

It is imperative that staff who may be dealing with the presentation of behaviours that challenge are suitably trained. This course offers the theoretical information that can then be supported by practical training (in particular if there is a requirement for physical intervention training). It is written to support all staff within various sectors, however, at times it does interact with the Health and Social Care Sector. Within the Health and Social Care sector there are a large number of “adults at risk” (vulnerable adults). They are deemed to be more at risk of presenting behaviours that challenge due to various conditions.
