We then developed a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Plan in conjunction with our consultant behavioural specialist. Staff were trained in how to implement the PBS plan and other specific support plans by our in-house trainers alongside a consultant psychologist.
The plans included an individual programme of support for Tony to control his aggressive behaviours together with thoughts diaries, reminder cards and our SPELL approach.
Tony has done well. He has not self-harmed in over 12 months, displays far less aggressive behaviour and has built friendships in the local area, particularly at the local bingo club. He is now mapping out his first move into supported living.
