Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a person centred framework for providing support in situations where there is, or there is a risk of, challenging behaviour.‘ Challenging behaviour’ is persistent behaviour that puts the physical safety of people at risk or that causes difficulties and limits a person’s ability to have a good life. Note: This does not include behaviours that are typically part of the autism spectrum such as ‘stimming’. PBS understands that challenging behaviour occurs for a reason and communicates important information about a person’s stress, distress and skill development.
Positive Caring Services offers all the support you need in one place. It incorporates the evidence-based practices of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Recovery-Oriented frameworks in a creative form.
