Positive Behaviour Support Day

Wednesday, 24th July 2024

A special one-day meeting on Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) will be held on Wednesday, 24th July at the University of Manchester during the BABCP Annual Conference. The day will be available in person or online.

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.

Delegates registered to attend the full conference or have registered for a day registration on 24th July can attend all or part of this day.

There is also the option to just attend the half day workshop in the morning online
