Creating positive behavior change in others can be both a challenging and rewarding process! It begins with clarifying our roles as part of a support system for those we work with. By expanding our perspectives and sharing our experiences, we are able to gain new insights into how to manage these complex roles.
When we begin to see behaviors that challenge us not as "problems" but as opportunities, then we empower ourselves to be facilitators of change. This training will provide a foundation for building attitudes, approaches, and interventions that will support the best possible outcome for people receiving services.
During this course, participants will:
- learn some of the basic principles of behavior,
- why challenging behaviors develop,
- strategies to assist staff not to personalize behaviors, and
- general interaction strategies and interventions, helpful in supporting a myriad of different and unique individuals.
