Behaviour Support and Safety Planning

November 2016 — The “Behaviour Support and Safety Planning” policy outlines requirements for service providers who support individuals with challenging behaviours in CLBC funded services. It reflects a positive approach to behaviour supports for adults and emphasizes the importance of recognizing and understanding behaviours as a form of communication. The policy clarifies that a ‘Safety Plan’ is required whenever a restrictive practice, such as the use of restraints, is being considered. It is accompanied by the “Guide for Service Providers” that provides more detail and best practice guidance on the expectations outlined in the policy.
