What is positive behaviour support?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is the guiding framework at INSIGHT, specifically crafted to address challenging behaviours in a constructive manner. Acknowledging that behaviours serve as a form of communication, PBS focuses on interpreting these messages, especially when individuals face difficulties expressing themselves or understanding their responses to various situations.

In instances where individuals develop coping mechanisms that may lead to harmful behaviours, INSIGHT recognizes the importance of understanding and addressing these challenges. These behaviours, often termed as challenging or protest behaviours, can be socially intrusive or unacceptable, impacting individuals’ participation in social activities. In extreme cases, this may result in social disengagement or the inappropriate use of restraints or punishments.

At INSIGHT, our Positive Behaviour Support approach firmly rejects punitive or punishment-based strategies for managing challenging behaviours. We embrace a wholly positive methodology. The process begins with a detailed analysis of the behaviour to comprehend the individual’s communication intent. We then identify potential skill development and environmental strategies to help individuals express their needs, wants, and thoughts in socially acceptable ways.

Our commitment to a person-centered, trauma-informed framework means placing individuals at the heart of our practice. We collaborate closely with the individual, their significant others, and the support team to develop plans, training, and responses that cater to the unique needs of each client.
