Responding well to people "labelled" as having challenging behaviour


These short videos were taken after a workshop Ann presented for Family Advocacy on Responding well to people "labelled" as having challenging behaviour - Is it behaviour or is it communication?

The workshop encouraged people to:

  • Determine a process that is respectful and non-punishing
  • Discover how you can collaborate to find the motivations,effects and consequences
  • Develop a range of strategies that can be used to minimise the effects of a person’s actions

Ann Greer has over twenty years of formal experience in working with people who are labelled as having challenging behaviour and is a well-known and highly sought after presenter in Australia and New Zealand.

She has a deep commitment to assisting everyone to be part of their community as active members - receiving and contributing.
