Positive Approaches to Challenging Behaviour: Foundation Course in Positive Behavioural Support (PBS)

Training Course Positive Response Training & Consultancy

About the CPD course

Behaviours which challenge always happen for a reason and are often a person’s best means of achieving some control over their environment and getting their needs met. Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) is a person-centred approach to supporting people who display, or are at risk of displaying, behaviours which challenge. PBS involves understanding the reasons for the behaviour and considering the person as a whole – including their life history, physical health and emotional needs – to implement ways of supporting the person.


This one-day PBS theory course is applicable to all staff who support service users whose behaviours challenge. The training gives a broad introduction to PBS by exploring:


  • The concept of challenging behaviour
  • Basic building blocks of the behavioural model 
  • Entry level behavioural assessment 
  • Basic interventions to prevent challenging behaviour 
  • How to create helpful learning environments.


The training is available as an easy to manage self-directed programme that provides you with all the information to deliver the training within your organisation. It can be completed by participants working independently or as part of a group run by a facilitator either in the classroom or via a sharing platform. The course comprises:


  • Five videos featuring the course tutor, Dr David Allen, Clinical Director
  • A workbook and additional exercise materials
  • A facilitator guide that supports the completion of the course exercises in a group format
  • The opportunity for participants to pose questions to the course tutor
  • An online automated knowledge test.
