Behaviour that Challenges

Designed for people who are looking to enter into or progress within the health and social care sector.

Challenging  behaviour is causing increasing concern today as many individuals have  increasing levels of stress and uncertainty in their lives. This  behaviour can be due to factors such as anxiety, neglect, abuse,  learning disabilities and conditions like dementia. Understanding the  causes of challenging behaviour is the first step towards finding ways  to support individuals and manage their behaviour. Lack of knowledge can  be a major barrier, which means that the right training is essential  for anyone dealing with challenging behaviour so they can respond  effectively to the triggers, signs and symptoms.
