Positive Behavioural Support (PBS)
PBS is an approach that is used to develop an understanding of the challenging behaviour that maybe displayed by an individual, based on an assessment of the environment where it happens. We include a range of views and the involve the important people in a person’s life. This helps us develop and implement a personalised system of support that supports behaviour change and enhances the quality of life for a person in the long term (Gore et al. 2013).
