Description de l'évenementAndrew McDonnell - This presentation will focus on how to manage behaviours of concern using a low arousal approach. This approach was developed to help supporters to practically manage 'highly aroused' and stressed individuals. There is an emphasis on verbal and nonverbal strategies to de-escalate crisis situations. In addition, the approach involves 'reflective practice' that is, 'What is my own contribution to the situation? Low-arousal approaches include interaction, diffusion and distraction strategies; coping with challenging behaviours including debriefing - why it is necessary and how to do it, managing versus changing behaviours, physical avoidance skills and physical intervention strategies.
Ellen Yack - This workshop will address the relationship between sensory processing and behaviour. Specific challenging behaviours often related to impaired sensory processing will be discussed. Tools to help analyze and determine the function of challenging behaviours will be reviewed.
