As a professional, how do you maximise opportunities for choice and participation for people with behavioural and cognitive symptoms and challenging behaviours, who use your service? That is your challenge in this essay.
Drawing on the readings provided, as well as your own research, discuss how you can maximise client choice and recognise human rights when working with people who have behavioural symptoms or distressed and challenging behaviours. You can provide some information about behaviour generally, talk about person-centred care, restraints, advocacy, stigma, labelling, and human rights, among other things.
You must choose to orientate your answer to either practice with older people or practice with younger people.
