Behaviour that Challenges Level 2
Welcome to the Behaviour that Challenges Level 2 course! This course is designed to provide you with an in-depth understanding of behaviour that challenges and equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to manage it effectively.
But what exactly is meant by the term ‘behaviour that challenges’? Challenging behaviour refers to any behaviour that may cause harm to the individual displaying it, others around them, or their environment. It can be exhibited by individuals of any age, but it is most commonly associated with those who have intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, or mental health conditions.
One of the key components of managing challenging behaviour is being able to recognise changes in individuals that may indicate an episode of challenging behaviour. In this course, you will learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of challenging behaviour and respond appropriately.
Non-verbal communication is also an essential part of managing challenging behaviour. Understanding and utilising non-verbal communication can help prevent incidents from escalating and de-escalate them when they do occur.
Finally, reflection on an incident can be an incredibly powerful tool in managing future behaviour. Through reflection, you can identify what worked and what didn’t in a given situation and use that knowledge to reform your approach in the future.
We hope that by the end of this course, you will feel confident and capable in managing behaviour that challenges and providing support to those who exhibit it.
