What is behaviour therapy?

Behaviour therapy, also known as behaviour modification, is a type of psychological treatment that focuses on changing or modifying specific behaviours in individuals. It is based on the principles of learning theory and uses evidence-based strategies to help people overcome various challenges and improve their overall well-being.


How does our behaviour therapy service assist NDIS participants?

Behaviour therapy can be a valuable intervention for NDIS participants as it can help address and manage behaviours of concern, promote skill development, and enhance their quality of life. Here are some ways in which our behaviour therapy services benefit NDIS participants:

Managing behaviours of concern

We always focus on identifying the underlying causes of behaviours of concern and developing strategies to modify or replace them with more appropriate and socially acceptable behaviours. Behaviour therapy helps NDIS participants understand the triggers for their behaviours and provides them with tools to effectively manage and respond to these triggers. This can lead to a reduction in behaviours of concern and improve social interactions and relationships.

Developing skills

Behaviour therapy aims to teach individuals new skills and behaviours that are essential for their daily functioning and independence. For NDIS participants, this could include social skills, communication skills, self-care skills, problem-solving skills, and more. By focusing on skill development, behaviour therapy empowers individuals to enhance their abilities, gain confidence, and improve their overall quality of life.

Emotional regulation

Many NDIS participants may struggle with emotional regulation, experiencing difficulties in managing their emotions and reactions. Behaviour therapy provides techniques and strategies to help individuals understand and regulate their emotions effectively. By learning healthy coping mechanisms, participants can experience improved emotional well-being, reduced stress levels, and better emotional stability.

Setting goals and personal growth

Our behaviour therapists work collaboratively with the NDIS participants to identify their goals and develop personalised plans to achieve them. This process promotes personal growth and empowers individuals to take an active role in their own development. By setting and working towards goals, participants can experience a sense of accomplishment, increased self-esteem, and a greater sense of control over their lives.

Family and caregiver support

At Achieve & Thrive behaviour therapy involves working closely with families and caregivers of NDIS participants. It provides education, guidance, and support to help them understand and implement behaviour management strategies at home and in other environments. This collaboration ensures consistency and reinforces positive behaviours, creating a more supportive and conducive environment for the individual’s growth and development.

If you have NDIS participants with behaviours of concern, we can assist.
