Communication problems, frustration and boredom can manifest themselves in physical outbursts, and working in a residential or domiciliary setting can involve responding to challenging behaviour towards staff and other residents.

Supporting Positive Behaviour examines the underlying reasons for the behaviour, ways to spot challenges before they occur and strategies to minimise or prevent incidents. This interactive workbook will help staff to understand appropriate interventions, how to monitor and record challenging behaviour, and implement strategies that will reduce the behaviours over time. The book is appropriate for all staff supporting people with mental health needs, people with a learning or physical disability, older people and people with dementia.

This workbook is a valuable source of guidance for any social care worker keen to improve their practice, and represents a cost-effective way for managers or trainers in residential and domiciliary settings to train staff.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An excellent introduction and helpful tool to use "on the job" for person new into the social care work force. -- International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support
The opening paragraph of this interactive workbook reminds us that we must respect every person we work with, including those whose communication and behaviour we find "challenging". What a refreshing starting point. Other texts often offer a traditional medical model of challenging behaviour as purely symptomatic of the person's diagnosis, but here we begin with the "person first" and the book continues this emphasis throughout. -- Journal of Dementia Care
The book will be a real help in staff development and training. There are excellent case studies, exercises and self-assessment "tools". -- Caring Times
