A person’s behaviour can be defined as “challenging” if it puts them or those around them, (such as their carer), at risk or leads to poorer quality of life. It can also impact on their ability to join in everyday activities. Challenging behaviour can include aggression, self-harm, destructiveness and disruptiveness.
Challenging behaviour is often seen in people with conditions that affect communication and the brain, such as learning disabilities or dementia.
Communication is the main way we interact and express our needs, likes and dislikes. If communication is a problem then it can be very frustrating for the person involved and may result in challenging behaviour. If this behaviour leads to a desired outcome, it may be repeated again and again.
The Managing Challenging Behaviour course is designed to increase awareness of the types, causes, signs, symptoms of challenging behaviour, and will focus on the care and understanding of a service user. This course will give appropriate skills and techniques that can be used when dealing with the challenging behaviour of the service user.
