01 Feb How To Understand Challenging Behaviour
Challenging behaviour can occur in individuals that have physical and mental health conditions as well as those with some learning difficulties. In some cases this behaviour can put the individual or others at risk and it is important that those working with people in these situations undertake an appropriate Challenging behaviour training course. This could be a course like the Tidal Training Challenger Behaviour Training Course. It is important for those in care roles and in other supportive positions, that they are aware of triggers that can impact on challenging behaviour as well as ways in which they can de-escalate situations.
Challenging behaviour can have a large impact on the lives of the individual and can also cause problems with their ability to join in and enjoy activities that many of us take for granted. The types of behaviour that fall into this category can include aggression as well as being disruptive or destructive and it can also include self harming behaviours.
It is important for those who support the individual, that they are able to spot the early warning signs that might enable the outburst from occurring or at least giving the carers the opportunity to find ways to be able to lessen the impact from the challenging behaviour. In most cases understanding the challenging behaviour starts with understanding the individual’s support needs and the challenges that they face and how best you can help overcome or support these.
