Positive Behavioural Support

The Department of Health's final report on Winterbourne View favours Positive Behavioural Support as a key support strategy for helping people with serious challenging behaviours. Central to Positive Behavioural Support is the process of Functional Behavioural Assessment: finding out under what conditions a person's behaviour tends to occur and what outcomes it achieves for them. It's only by producing such an assessment that we can properly understand the meaning behind a person's behaviour and plan appropriate supports, and we know that intervention plans based on Functional Behavioural Assessment are significantly more successful than those which are not.
