This course will help staff to improve the lives of people who display challenging behaviour as it is concerned with how staff can support service users to replace the behaviours with positive actions.
This course supports care workers by identifying what they can and cannot do, gives advice as to how they can remain safe, keep service users safe and act within organisational, local and national procedures.
This course will appeal to staff from a variety of social care settings. Staff will be supporting adults who display behaviours considered to challenge, in settings ranging from residential care, respite care, day services, educational provision and the voluntary sector.
The programme is divided into 10 modules, all of which are core modules, each one concentrating on an important and specific aspect of challenging behaviour in elderly people and the role of the carer.
