Title: Caring for People with Problem Behaviours
Author: Bernadette Keane; Carolyn Dixon
 
Excerpt
Introduction

This book offers a Solution-focused Behavioural Change Model that can be used to develop strategies to solve the problems that difficult behaviours can cause. In recognition of the increasing numbers of aged people in care, some of the illustrative examples are derived from behaviours seen in people who are elderly.

Throughout this book the term 'client' is used to refer to those in your care who are patients, clients, residents, elderly people in their own homes etc. Important words have been highlighted and the glossary towards the back of the book explains their meanings.

Each of the seven chapters in this book includes: learning objectives; chapter references; instructional material; learning activities; and post-activity explanations that serve as answer guides.

With regard to the learning activities, our advice here and at the top of each activity (as a reminder) is to photocopy the page(s) on which the learning activity appears and complete the activity on the photocopy. This allows you to tackle a learning activity more than once for practice and reinforcement.

One of the most interesting features in the book is the test that has been included immediately after this introduction to enable you to gauge your current knowledge about the planned management of behavioural problems. Our advice is to take the test without checking the answers. If you find the pre test difficult, do not be deterred, as all of the information and concepts are explained during the course of the text. When you have finished the book, take the test again, check the answers, then compare your two tests to see just what you have learned about caring for people with problem behaviours.

We are confident that the information presented here and the skills that you can develop through the use and reuse of this book will help you, whatever your role in caring for clients, to experience fewer interpersonal difficulties and to share more enjoyable relationships.
