Project Details

Project Description

Challenging Behaviours are a common and distressing issue for many people after moderate to severe acquired brain injury. We have recently completed a waitlist controlled trial of Positive Behaviour Support intervention, called PBS+PLUS, which is a person-driven and collaborative approach to improving quality of life and self-regulating behaviour after brain injury. We have now launched the Positive Behaviour Service at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health Clinics. This project will involve the evaluation of the training provided for neuropsychological trainees and co-design of training materials including workshops, tip-sheets and podcasts.
