Positive Behavioural Support

PBS is a dynamic, practical, ethical practice. It applies behavioural techniques in a person-centred war. It supports people to work towards living in an ordinary community setting, with minimal support.

Milestones Trust leads the way in Positive Behavioural Support, employing a dedicated PBS Manager to work with service users, planning with them and applying PBS principles. This might include modifying environments and focusing on everyday skills and specific skills like self-reflection and anger management. It is about understanding and individual's behaviour as a form of communication. This conference will give you a better understanding of PBS and how it works, as well as takeaway ideas, inspiration and the chance to meet others withan interest in this field.

Expert speakers include Robert Pardoe, of the University of the West of England, and Alan Nuttall of Milestones Trust.
