Positive Behaviour Support: Professional Development, Mentoring and Supervision

Workshops of 2 or 3 days. 

These are only offered to whole teams.

These teams can include supervisors, managers, family members, advocates, people with a disability, and friends as well as staff.

In fact, it is preferable that people with a disability and these important significant others in their life are included.


Topics include:

  • Defining what PBS is, and what it is not
  • John O’Brien’s 5 Accomplishments as signposts to a better quality of life
  • Person-Centred Planning as an essential context for PBS
  • Focussing and building on strengths
  • Magnifying the things that work
  • Minimising the things that don’t work
  • Using Summary Statements to get a handle on why the person might be displaying problem behaviours
  • Developing plans to support and teach positive behaviour
  • Preventing and defusing incidents



I also provide:

Ongoing supervision and mentoring services for behaviour support professionals.

These can include one-to-one, group, face-to-face and electronic contact.
