Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) aims to understand the causes of a person’s challenging behaviours through consultation with the person their carers, families, and other support systems.
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)
Our PBS clinicians at Concentric, prepare a document that is used as a guide for the person's PBS plan. This will contain strategies based on evidence that can fully address the needs of the individual to improve the quality of their life.
PSB is an evidence-based framework consisting of four main elements:
- Developing an understanding about why challenging behaviours occur by assessing the impact of the social environment, physical environment and broader context on the person with disability
- Involving stakeholders and capturing their perspectives
- Using the emerging understanding from assessment to implement and evaluate a person-centred sustainable support system around the person with disability
- Focusing on enhancing quality of life outcomes for the person with disability and those around them
We have PBS clinicians operating across the country. For more information on PBS or to speak to a PBS clinician about an appointment today, please call us on 1300 148 160.
