Demonstrate how reflection on own role in an incident of challenging behaviour can improve the promotion of positive behaviour

NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

I always reflect upon my own role following an incident of challenging behaviour because this helps me to recognise and understand my own feelings after the event as well as take an objective look at what I did well and what I could have done better.

 

This reflection allows me to come up with ideas and strategies for handling future incidents differently and improve my skills as a support worker. If I feel I have done something incorrectly I will speak to the individual to get their opinions and ask them what I should do differently in future. I may also obtain guidance from my colleagues and manager.
