What is PBS?
PBS is a values-led approach that aims to improve the quality of a person’s life and that of the people around them
Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is about working in partnership with people, treating them with dignity and respect and enabling them to have a better life.
All behaviours have a meaning. Positive Behaviour Support aims to understand what behaviours that challenge tell us so that the person’s needs can be met in better ways. The way the person is supported often has to change to achieve this and this needs to be regularly reviewed by all the people involved.
Positive Behaviour Support is an approach that puts the person at the centre to make systems work for the person. We give the right support at the right time so people can thrive to their potential.
