PBS Training Courses

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS).

A 3-day Positive Behaviour Support training course from the Association for Psychological Therapies, a leading provider of training for professionals working in mental health and related areas. Attend as an individual or we can bring this APT-Accredited course to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version also available).

Executive Summary:

The course covers the background and rationale for PBS and then looks at understanding an individual’s needs, analysing their behaviour and understanding the role it fulfils. Positive and proactive, the training will empower delegates to develop individual PBS plans aimed at improving their clients’ environment and wellbeing, thus decreasing the likelihood of disturbed behaviour. Using skills and understanding from the course delegates will be able to develop specific client-centred plans, also considering their situation and family / carers.

Given that some incidents will inevitably still occur the course also covers steps to manage a crisis and to continually review and improve the plan.

This is a powerful approach that improves the environment and wellbeing of both clients and staff. This is the only PBS course that is APT accredited and gives access to relevant web-based APT resources after the course.

You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course.

Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.

Booking this training is easy.

Option 1: Exclusive Live Webinar (for groups):

This course can be provided as a live webinar for groups. A webinar typically takes slightly less time than the live course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they are live and pleasingly interactive. Click here to view prices.

Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection. And as a manager, you have ‘guaranteed completion’: you only pay for delegates who successfully complete (minimum 15).

You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.
