Loddon Training & Consultancy’s annual conference will provide an intensive two days of learning and development to help social workers, healthcare managers, special educational needs teachers and other professionals explore new approaches to supporting individuals with behaviours of concern.
During workshops and talks from experts in the field of behaviours of concern, attendees will discover the latest thinking on topics including positive behaviour support, mindfulness and wellbeing. Delegates will gain practical insights to help them implement positive behaviour support models such as Loddon Training & Consultancy’s pioneering PROACT-SCIPr-UK® approach.
In the keynote speech, Gary LaVigna, Clinical Director of the Institute for Applied Behaviour Analysisin California, will examine ‘the alignment fallacy’ – the belief that when behaviour of concern reaches a crisis point, restrictive practices must be used to prevent injury to the client, staff or the public. Gary will challenge this belief and present the evidence for an alternative model of positive behaviour support.
Other speakers include:
Health psychologist Michael McCreadie, of Studio III Clinical Services, on ‘What is the good life?’
Osteopath Howard Beardmore, on trying to understand behaviour without psychology.
Clinical psychologist Erica McInnis, from the Community Learning Disability Team at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, on how mindfulness can benefit people with intellectual disabilities and their carers.
Simon Jones, Head of Behavioural Support at Living Ambitions, on implementing positive behaviour support within an organisation.
“Our annual conference is a great place for anyone involved in the care and support of individuals with behaviours of concern to share experiences with like-minded professionals, keep up to date with the latest research and regulations, and to learn new ways of working,” says Janet Bromley, Director of Training, Consultancy and Quality at Loddon Training & Consultancy.
