What triggers challenging behaviour

When it starts to occur challenging behaviour can be an unsettling and frightening experience for anybody on the other end of it.   It can also be the same set of emotions for the person who is exhibiting challenging behaviour in the first place. Understanding and recognising when this challenging behaviour occurs is where the triggers are set.  If these triggers can be avoided or circumvented then there is a good chance that the challenging behaviour will not be shown by the person who displays it. Help with this can be found by studying a Challenging behaviour course such as those from www.tidaltraining.co.uk/learning-disability-training/challenging-behaviour-training-breakaway-techniques.
