Behaviours That Challenge

We at IBC understand that all behaviours of concern, distress and arousal happen for a reason and that all behaviour is a form of communication. We take a positive stance and viewpoint towards the people we support and do not take these behaviours personally.

We have taken the Restraint Reduction Network pledge and follow the principles outlined within Positive Behavioural Support to understand the individual and their complex support needs. Functional assessments, PBS plans, and in-depth incident reviews are used in conjunction with person-centred support plans to identify the function of any behaviours of concern, the triggers, and risks so that we can hopefully reduce the severity, frequency and likelihood of these behaviours occurring.

All our staff team are trained in CPI Safety Intervention, Autism, bespoke person-centred training, active support, and where needed any further training which are all focused in reducing negative stress, teaching coping strategies, developing primary and secondary prevention strategies, and promoting independence and positive quality of life.

IBC has a Positive Behaviour Support practitioner who supports both people we support and staff to create holistic environments and stimulate ideas, ensuring staff are knowledgeable about PBS and linking this to day-to-day care over both short and long term.
