Tim Feeney 2Brain Injury Australia has a one-day workshop for professionals working in domains where behaviour is a concern. The workshop will be presented by Dr Tim Feeney (pictured), a leading US practitioner of Positive Behaviour Support strategies in brain injury and autism. The workshop has been organised for professionals working in areas including disability, education, employment and mental health.

These research-based strategies have been developed to help decrease behaviours of concern, from an understanding of behaviour patterns, making changes to a person’s environment to eliminate triggers and teaching pro-social skills. Its use has been demonstrated to result in improvements in self-reported quality of life as well as positive social interactions across work, academic, recreational and community settings. Feeney is executive director of Transitional Services for Youth and Families and director of the Overcoming Barriers to Learning Center in New York.

The workshop will be held on August 15 at the offices of Slater & Gordon, Melbourne.
