Dealing with ‘Behaviours which Challenge’

What are ‘behaviours that challenge’?

Behaviour which challenges is any behaviour that puts someone at risk to themselves or others. This can be physical or emotional behaviour and often has a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life and their ability to engage in positive relationships. It is often seen in people with health problems that affect communication and the brain, but can also be common amongst children and adults who experience emotional difficulties.

What are the symptoms?

‘Behaviour which challenges’ can take many different forms and this list is not exhaustive:

  • Hitting, biting and scratching
  • Verbal abuse
  • Self harm
  • Head-banging, pulling hair out
  • Aggression
  • Inappropriate sexualised behaviour
  • Disinhibited or impulsive behaviour
