In November last year Hearth Support Services opened a regional office in downtown 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 Hearths ongoing commitment to the Greater Bendigo Region Hearth is staging a Positive Behaviour Support event on Friday the 4th of March at the Bendigo Library.

Hearth Positive Behaviour Support Bendigo Event Details

Dr Erin Leif from Monash University will deliver a session that addresses.

  • The underpinning principles of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), and contemporary approaches to PBS.
  • Dispel some myths about Positive Behaviour Support.
  • Unpack and discuss 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 is offered free of charge.
