Behavioural intervention

Behavioural intervention is designed to help a person learn to change her or his behaviour, which consists of positive behavioural intervention plans in acquisition and use of new alternative skills, as well as in decreasing the problem behaviour and facilitating general improvements in a person’s life quality. A behavioural intervention plan may include ways to change the environment to keep behaviour from starting in the first place, provide positive reinforcement to promote good behaviour, employ planned ignoring to avoid reinforcing bad behaviour, and provide support needed so that the person will not be driven to act out due to frustration or fatigue. Behavioural intervention is often used in parenting issues and problematic child behaviours.
