Challenging Behaviour

The Challenging Behaviour course enables you to have an awareness and understand of the reasons why a person may present behaviour that challenges. We share ways of assessing what's being presented through writing behaviour support programmes and teaching replacement skills.

We explore a range of tactics, methods and approaches to support the person, thus reducing the behaviours with short and long term strategies. Our course is designed to pass out knowledge to you and your staff with an aim of managing the situation safely and reducing stress and anxiety for all involved.  


What is challenging behaviour?

Challenging behaviour is complex but in a nutshell, it is behaviour with such intensity, frequency or duration that the physical safety of the person of others is placed in serious jeopardy or behaviour which is likely to seriously limit or deny access to the use of ordinary community facilities. If not managed properly it can seriously affect a person's health and well being.


What age range do you cover?

Where possible we set the content of the course to the age range that the participants would be supporting. From nurseries to adults to care homes, we would make sure we cover what you need to know by talking to you to see what your staff require before the course is delivered. One to One Support Services can deliver the course at your location. All your staff receive the same knowledge and a consistent team approach to managing challenging behaviour is developed. Staff have the same shared understanding to support each other and those they are working with.
