The Fundamental Series:
PBS 101: Supporting Adulthood in Service: lifelong learning and supporting sexuality with Shaun Wood
We believe there is a place for everyone in the community. Everyone in service deserves positive and empowering services that help them reach their goals. What happens when behavior gets in the way? This web-based training series will provide the basics of positive behavior supports as they can be applied to a variety of adult disability services. Students can take the series all together, or they can pick and choose individual webinar sessions.
Learning Objectives (Info, tools, and skills attendees will receive):
- Learners will understand the historical and current day considerations of delivering positive behavior supports
- Learners will understand the difference between the medical and social models of disability
- Learners will be able to apply ethical frameworks to their own work
