What is PBS – Positive Behaviour Support
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a model / approach to supporting people who may display behaviours some may consider challenging.
The PBS model revolves around working in partnership with people, treating them with dignity and respect and enabling them have a better life.
All behaviours have a meaning. The Positive Behaviour Support model we use aims to understand what the purpose of different behaviours. Only when we understand the purpose behind the behaviour can we truly begin to support the individual to develop safer more positive behaviours to replace the original behaviour.
Positive Behaviour Support put the person at the centre of their support. We do this in order to make systems that work for the person. We give the right support at the right time so people can thrive to their potential.
