Positive Behaviour Support Day

Postponed until October 2024

This event has now been postponed to October and will run as an online event. Delegates attending the conference in Manchester will be invited to register for this day when the date has been finalised.

PBS is a multicomponent framework for developing an understanding of behaviour that challenges based on assessment of social, physical and individual factors and utilising evidence-based support. The overall goal is to enhance the person’s quality of life, thus reducing the likelihood of challenging behaviour.
