Dr Erin Leif Demystifies Positive Behaviour Support

Dr Erin Leif Presents at Hearth Allied Health Positive Behaviour Support Bendigo Event

Dr Erin Leif Demystifies Positive Behaviour Support at Hearth Allied Health Bendigo Event

I am super excited by the response to today’s event at the Bendigo Library and the opportunity to invest in the Greater Bendigo Region. The response from all attendees and the Zoom participants has been overwhelmingly positive!

In November last year Hearth Support Services opened a regional office in central Bendigo which is headed up by local Amanda Marek.

Shortly after in December 2021 Hearth hosted its first event Hearths “Disability Housing Solution” which really resonated with the Bendigo community.

As a demonstration of Hearth’s ongoing commitment to the Greater Bendigo Region Hearth staged todays Positive Behaviour Support event in partnership with Dr Erin Leif.

Dr Erin Leif Addressed the Following at Today’s Positive Behaviour Support Bendigo Event

Dr Erin Leif from Monash University delivered a session that addressed.

  • The underpinning principles of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), and contemporary approaches to PBS.
  • Dispelling myths about Positive Behaviour Support.
  • Unpacking and discussing some common misconceptions around restrictive practices, their use, and regulatory obligations. 

This event is part of a series of professional development opportunities at Hearth, bringing together leaders in the field of Positive Behaviour Support.

At Hearth, we believe that we have a collective responsibility to promote best practice and share our expertise with the broader NDIS community, therefore this Professional Development opportunity was offered free of charge.

Dr Erin Leif PhD, BCBA (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst)

Dr Erin Leif is a globally recognised behaviour analyst who is a Board-Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) and Senior Lecturer at Monash University. Erin is enthusiastic about the science of human behaviour, learning, language, and cognition (why we do what we do!).

Erin’s primary research interests involve the exploration of strategies for building the capacity of the workforce to better support individuals with additional needs (especially children and young people with behaviours of concern, who are most at risk for exclusion and social isolation).

Dr Erin Leif is particularly interested in knowledge translation research. For Erin, knowledge translation involves collaborating with professionals, educators, parents, and individuals to exchange information about what works, and what we need to do better to solve socially important problems.

Thank you to the City of Greater Bendigo for facilitating the use of the venue.
