Managing Behaviours which Challenge

When a person’s behaviour puts them or others at risk, or affects their daily activities, this could be considered behaviour which challenges. This means that the person’s behaviour becomes difficult to manage and is likely to negatively impact both their and your wellbeing.

If you work within an environment where these types of behaviours may occur, it is essential that you receive comprehensive training to keep both yourself and those you work with safe and healthy.
