Online Webinar – Zoom
DATE: Wednesday 30 November 2022
TIME: 11:00am – 12:30pm AEDT
This webinar brings together a panel of experts to discuss how we can better assist people who have behaviours that concern us. In this webinar we will look at behaviour as a means of communication of unmet needs and how we can better support a person to live a meaningful life.
People with disability who display behaviours of concern challenge us greatly. Often the response is restrictive practices to ensure the safety of the person and others around them. While often necessary, restrictive practices are a restriction on the person’s autonomy. So how do we support choice and control and improve a person’s quality of life when they have behaviours of concern? What can support coordinators and allied health professionals do to assist with safety and safeguarding AND choice and control?
After attending this workshop you will have a better understanding of working with people who have behaviours of concern and how you can demonstrate leadership in supporting rights, choice and control and supported decision-making.
The webinar is the 4th in our Supported Decision-making series and takes a rights-based approach to positive behaviour support and support for decision-making, with a focus on home and living situations.
