Conscious Care & Support (CCS) – TrainingBrunch & Learn – Positive Holistic Behaviour Support
To optimally meet the holistic support needs of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, and / or a mood / mental health disorder, core competencies, traditional support practices, behavioural management strategies and accountability systems are ESSENTIAL, BUT ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH – EQUALLY ESSENTIAL IS THAT SUPPORTERS AND LEADERS MUST HAVE:
- Mindful presence
- Personal & professional emotional maturity e.g. emotional self-regulation skills
- An uncompromising commitment to wanting to help others
- Authentic compassion for all others even when we don’t feel like it
- The most current evidence-based prevention and management interventions* necessary to compliment valuable however incomplete strategies
*CCS applies simple and practical research discoveries from the disciplines of mindfulness, neuroplasticity, social neurobiology, emotional freedom therapy, nutrition, GI health and biofeedback and integrates these sciences with what is relevant of conventional behavioural treatment and management.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Families and carers, support professionals, leaders, therapists, and anyone with an interest in making a difference within the lives of others.
