Join now to be part of our 12 week family ITaBW program where we will go on a journey together to better understand why people behave in challenging ways and how we can support them and yourself to lead the best life possible.
Included in the 12 week program:
- 12 weeks of self paced and guided learning
- Access to 6 chapters of information equivalent to around 10 hours of learning
- 4 group zoom sessions where we can connect and explore your personal needs
- Program booklet
- Access to other resources and tools you can use
The next program will be starting at the end of May so register your interest now!
Once you've registered your interest, we will contact you to let you know some more details about the course and the link to enrol.
Our introduction chapter will have us explore what we mean by challenging behaviour, and start to explore what might influence a person to need to engage in these behaviours. We have a closer look at the way our brain and bodies work in response to stress and how this can lead to behaviours that may concern us.
We know that we experience stress and sometimes engage in behaviours when our underlying needs are not met. But what are those underlying needs?
How we view behaviour and the needs of people is so very important when understanding and creating approaches to support people well and hopefully reduce the likelihood of behaviours that can be challenging. Here we talk about some important frameworks to consider as a starting point to creating change.
Chapter 4 (Part 1)
In this chapter we start to explore how to build supports to meet underlying needs in relationships, health and sensory regulation.
Chapter 4 (Part 2)
We continue our discussion about underlying needs, discussing how to build supports to meet needs for interaction, communication, predictability and processing.
Effective support is based on helping people be regulated. We discuss how regulation develops and how we can best support and respond when our loved one is stressed, anxious, upset.
Our last chapter helps us pull all the information together and think about how you, as the most important and knowledgable person in your son or daughter's life can lead the way in planning and advocating for the best support approaches and services that make sense to your family.
