Free Challenging Behaviour Training Workshops

July 7th, 2015 / No Comments » / by adminsarah

These workshops are designed for the families of individuals of all ages who have learning disabilities and display behaviours which may be deemed as challenging. They are available to families who have loved ones living both within and outside of the home environment.

       The approach is person-centred, non-aversive and reflects families’ perspectives.

      The workshops give participants basic skills in functional assessment, reactive/proactive strategies and behaviour support plans.

      The style is interactive and informal – participation is encouraged through discussions and activities in small/whole groups.

 The workshops are titled ‘Understanding Challenging Behaviour and Supporting Behaviour Change’ and are delivered over two sessions within school hours. It is important that all participants attend both of the above workshops.

 You will discuss areas such as:

       What is challenging behaviour

      The impact of challenging behaviour

      Why do people challenge

      Purposes (functions) of behaviour

      How to look after yourself

      Positive behaviour support

      How to prevent challenging behaviour

      How to stop behaviour escalating

      How to manage in a crisis

      What to do after an incident

      Individual planning and behaviour support plans

 Families will be provided with the opportunity to focus on their loved one specifically and to undertake work relevant to their individual situations.

Walk a Mile in my Shoes

May 26th, 2015 / No Comments » / by adminsarah

The count-down begins, with just over 2 weeks to go until ‘Walk a Mile in my Shoes’ now in it’s third year, it’s a fantastic family fun day and carer awareness event, with activities for children and adults. 

This year it will be the biggest carer awareness event in the South West of England and will be taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Pittville Park and Pump Rooms, Cheltenham on Sunday 7th June 2015. ‘Walk a mile in my shoes’ will see people from across the county swapping footwear with their sons, daughters, husbands, friends, neighbours or even a complete stranger to walk a mile around the Park to launch national Carers Week.

Thanks to grants from the Barnwood Trust and the Freemasons, this year Carers Gloucestershire will be offering a whole afternoon of free entertainment and activities for all carers and the local community once the walk is complete.

Browse the multitude of Craft Stalls, bounce on the inflatables and get your face painted and enjoy hot food from the Wiggly Worm charity, with refreshments and cake available from the tea tent.

This is a free event and everyone is welcome, but we really want you to ‘Swap Shoes’ and take part in our sponsored walk to raise much needed funds for local carers. Registration for the walk is £10 which includes your  ‘Walk a mile in my Shoes 2015′ t-shirt and goody bag. (Under 16s can register for free.)

Register now online www.carersgloucestershire.org.uk or by calling on 01452 386283.
