Code: ESC/19/206 Leadership Workshop: Strategic Planning

It does not take much to be convinced of the importance of planning. Research and anecdotal examples abound with teams that have thrived or failed due to adequate or inadequate planning. We are all well aware that when it comes to planning skills, we can either create our own destiny or be at the mercy of the moment. The key is to create the plan that will allow our team to become what it needs to be.

We will look at how strategic planning differs from tactical planning. We will then examine the elements of strategic planning, develop a strategic intent and identify the core competencies, that will allow us to thrive in challenging times.

Code: ASC/19/728 Positive Behaviour Support

The PBS modular training is open to professionals, families and carers who support adults with learning disabilities who also have challenging needs.

PBS Sussex is a training model designed to equip direct carers with the knowledge and skills to provide a comprehensive response to challenging behaviour presented by people with intellectual disabilities. The model taught is Positive Behaviour Support (PBS).

Essentially, PBS is the application of behavioural analysis, guided by the values and principles of inclusion, within the context of Person Centred Planning. In keeping with the PBS model, the training is presented in modules with an emphasis on understanding the behaviour in useful ways, creating supportive environments and teaching new skills, a strong emphasis on intervening early in a crisis situation in order to diffuse and only using physical intervention as a last resort.


PBS:

· Is values led

· Is based on an understanding of why, when and how behaviours happen

· Focuses on altering triggers for behaviour

· Uses skill teaching as a central intervention

· Uses changes in quality of life as both an intervention and outcome measure

· Has a long term focus

· Has a multi-component focus

· Reduces or eliminates the use of punishment approaches

· Includes both proactive strategies for changing behaviour and reactive strategies for managing behaviour when it occurs.
