When would you contact SBIS?

  • Locally based intervention has been unsuccessful
  • There is a need for an independent perspective – a second opinion.
  • Assistance is needed with training.
  • Clinical experience in similar cases is needed.
  • The clinicians general practice would benefit from collaborative involvement.

Overview of inconsistencies in practice highlighted by our process of work.

  • Extent of information collected and depth of analysis varies.
  • There is different understandings of what constitutes a Behavioural Assessment.
  • Process of assessment (knowing what to do).
  • Practical knowledge (knowing how to do).
  • Differences in use of language and terminology.
  • Depth of understanding of the client \ behaviour varies.
  • The need to link assessment information collected, the function / formulation and the intervention.

Understanding The Function Of Behaviour: A Practice Guide

Resilience through capacity building

David Doyle and Brett Owens


Who is this guide for?

  • This guide is for staff of Government and Non-government organisations whose role is to attempt to understand a clients challenging behaviour. These staff include psychologists, community workers, and other regional behaviour intervention workers.

What is the practice guide?

  • A clear presentation of the process of developing an understanding of the function of a clients challenging behaviour.
  • Guidelines for developing an overall clinical formulation around the clients behaviour.
  • A clear explanation of how to conduct each step of the process. Including:
    • Definitions and explanations
    • Tips and cautions
    • Guidance in the analysis of information.

What is the purpose of the practice guide?

  • Two key outcomes of implementing this practice guide are:
    • 1)a comprehensive assessment of the person engaging in the challenging behaviour.  Ultimately the assessment hypothesises reasons why the person is engaging in challenging behaviour in order to meet his/her needs.
    • 2)a Behaviour Intervention Plan (BIP)/ Multi-Element Support Plan (MESP).  These aim to decrease the client’s reliance on challenging behaviour.

Why is the guide needed?

  • Not everyone enters this field knowing how to assess behaviour. People also have different levels of experience, confidence and support.
  • There are many job types and disciplines – with no common skill set.
  • Some poor practice can be perpetuated via peer advice eg use of indiscriminate and sole use of the M.A.S. in assessing client behaviour.
  • Informed assessments improve:
    • The effectiveness of interventions.
    • The client’s image in the staffs perception via explanation of their behaviour.

Who is it pitched at?

  • The information is pitched at people ranging from novice staff to those who have had moderate experience in conducting behavioural assessments.
  • If you use this guide in an early attempt at this kind of assessment, please utilise support to do so.
  • Mentoring, peer support, and supervision are important source of this support.

What does the guide cover?

  • How to develop a lifestyle and environment review (LER)
  • Incident Prevention and Response Plan (IPRP)
  • Gathering information for the assessment.
  • How to deduce the hypotheses for the function\s of the
  • behaviour?
  • How that function\s fit into a larger formulation of the client and their context as a whole?
  • How to use this function and formulation  to develop recommendations into a MESP?

How to use this technology?

  • This guide is produced in html (internet) format.
  • It will work inside a web browser.
  • It will be available on CD, via the web and downloadable to your own CD.
  • You can follow the guide sequentially to gain knowledge about the process of developing a functional understanding of challenging behaviour and you can also branch off to gain more details about the practicalities and pitfalls of implementing this methodology.

Advantages of the guide.

  • Fills the gap between policy and literature.
  • Creates a framework for clinicians to use.
  • Has both process and procedural information.
  • Attempts to explain why each step is included.
  • Easy to navigate and understand.
  • Can be used with parents and service providers to explain what you are doing.
  • The guide can be used as a supervision, collaboration or educational tool.
  • It will be free of charge and reproducible.
  • Will be updated regularly.
