Positive Intervention Strategies when Working with Children and Young People

Course overview

This course will give a range of social care practitioners the knowledge required to support their practice and understanding of the key components of Positive Behaviour Support, the theory, science and values that underpin it and how it works in practice.
The course explores what positive intervention strategies are available for use in working with children and young people. As we explore the reasons why behavior that challenges occurs, learners will be encouraged to self-reflect on their own practice.
Learners will audit behaviour support plans and work with each other to decide on how to intervene with positive intervention strategies and avoid restrictive practice.
Understanding how to think holistically about each individual child or young person being supported will ensure that practitioners make the connection of wellbeing, safeguarding and quality of life to the applied strategies of positive interventions they may have used.
Throughout this course professional codes, regulating conduct, legislation and systemic practice is embedded.
