3-Day intermediate PBS workshop for PBS practitioners (ADL)

June 12 @ 9:30 am - June 14 @ 4:30 pm

$636.34 – $751.84
For successful PBS to occur, practitioners need the skills to conduct a comprehensive functional behaviour assessment and develop data-based PBS plan with the primary goal of improving the quality of life of individuals who present with behaviours of concern.

A three-day Intermediate PBS workshop will be offered to PBS practitioners (team leaders/allied health) in June in Adelaide.

This training is focussed on people working in disability, and is relevant to many disability types such as autism (ASD), intellectual disability (ID) and acquired brain injury (ABI).

This workshop is aimed at practitioners working with clients with challenging behaviour / behaviours of concern, and who are seeking to increase their PBS understanding and application. It is expected that attendees will have a relevant client load, and will probably be supervisors and team leaders of support staff, or allied health practitioners such as occupational therapists, developmental educators and psychologists.

This workshop will take place each day for three successive days and offers 15 hours CPD.

It will include video-based case examples, interactive dialogue with both presenters, and active learning tasks
