Next Seminar: Wednesday June 9th, 2021 @ 5pm - 7pm (Virtual via ZOOM)
Topic: Positive Behavior Support
Positive Behavior Support is a behavioral treatment approach which promotes replacing problematic behaviors with more appropriate ones. It can be used across environments (home, school, community, etc.) and offers a concrete road map for the reduction of maladaptive behaviors.
In this seminar, respite workers will be provided strategies to help them support people with challenging behaviors in positive ways.
