Supporting those dealing with challenging behaviour
Facing challenging behaviour is part and parcel of what people working in care have to deal with. However there are many Training Systems and ways in which those working in care can help support People Who exhibit challenging behaviour and therefore protect themselves from this as well. Attending a Challenging behaviour course, like that from providers such as www.tidaltraining.co.uk/learning-disability-training/challenging-behaviour-training-breakaway-techniques, is one of the first steps that can be taken.
Caregivers should think about their own safety but also that of the person displaying challenging behaviour. It’s very likely that they may pose a risk to themselves and others around them. If you have the knowledge of having to deal with this it will reduce the risk to yourself and others but also to the person that is exhibiting the challenging behaviour. This kind of attitude that people display has a direct impact on their quality of life and how they are able to live it. With intervention there can be significant improvements in behaviour and emotional well-being for all concerned.
If you work in care there is also the fact that you have to have a legal and ethical responsibility to all the people that you care for. It is down to the caregiver to have an understanding of the causes and triggers of the challenging behaviour so that it can be treated and managed in the best way possible for the person who is suffering with it and exhibiting it.
