Description:
Efforts by service providers the world over to enable people with disabilities to live and work as integrated members of the community have led to the need to develop more effective ways of dealing with challenging behavior. Large organizations have a particularly difficult task in striving to improve the quality of life of their service users while intervening in positive ways to bring about a reduction in agressive or self-injurious behaviors. This article presents the attempts of one such organization to equip its staff with the structures, supports, training and expertise to deal positively with challenging behavior and thereby to enhance its work of community and social integration.
