This handbook is a great resource which is essential in helping ensure that there is a competent workforce that has the capabilities to provide effective, ethical and high quality support to people whose behaviour is described as challenging. It can be used as a stand alone resource but also supports the training pack of the same name - 'Challenging Behaviour'. This user friendly and accessible resource emphasises the importance of respecting people who use services, their families and carers.
