Supporting Behavioural Change
The following global ideas guide the design and delivery of this course:
- All behaviour is an attempt at communication and needs to be understood in relation to the individual demonstrating the behaviour.
- The goal of behaviour management is long-term adaptive change rather than immediate control.
- Effective behaviour management requires the practitioner to engage children and youth and their families with respect and humility.
- Behavioural interventions must be sensitive and and appropriate to the cultural context in which they occur.
- Group Work
- Student Presentations
- Guest Speakers
- Audio-Visual Presentations
All methods of instruction apply to in class, hybrid and/or online modes of learning.
This course will conform to the Douglas College Evaluation Policy regarding the number and weighting of evaluations.
Typical means of evaluation will include a combination of written research assignments, case evaluation, testing, and group presentations. This is a Graded Course.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Discuss the effects of difficult behaviour on the child/youth's ecologocal systems.
- Describe relational factors involved in the development of behaviour change strategies.
- Assess difficult behaviour within its context accurately and objectively.
- Examine various behaviour change models and apply those models in the development of behavioural change strategies.
- Evaluate the efficacy of designed behavioural change interventions.
- Apply a reflective practice model to assist practitioner self-awareness regarding personal reactions to difficult behaviours.
