Potentially Aggressive Clients & Behaviours of Concern
There will be times when you, as a carer, will experience behaviours of concern that have the potential to escalate into aggressive behaviour. Positive behaviour support is an evidence based approach with a primary goal of helping people to increase their quality of life. Often challenging behaviour are messages from clients that something is wrong or missing and they need help yo make it better. In this module we look at how we determine the severity of the behaviour and ways in which we can manage the behaviour using the least restrictive method to the client’s personal freedom.
