Module 9 - Challenging Behaviours
Key Learning Points:


Challenging behaviour can have a number

of possible causes and often has more than

one cause.


Where challenging behaviour has changed

significantly or a new behaviour appears, it

is important to exclude physical illness or



Intervention to shape the behaviour of

another person should only be undertaken

where their behaviour presents a

significant risk to the person or to others.


The key to management is a careful

assessment to identify what environmental, physical, mental or emotional factors

are contributing to the behaviour and then trying to modify these.
