This badge relates to chapter 3 of the Positive Behaviour Support e-Book and will introduce the importance of building and maintaining good relationships between ourselves and the people we support. These relationships must be built on connection with people we support and should demonstrate respect and equality. This is a fundamental aspect of PBS and is the building block for all the other parts of a PBS framework.
The aim of the chapter is for you to learn about the importance of rapport and to consider some practical ways to build rapport with people.
To be awarded this badge, you must:
Complete the rapport self-rating form about a person you support and attach a copy to your badge application.
Write or record a short reflective account of between 200 and 300 words about what you think anyone supporting the person should do and say to develop and maintain good rapport.
You should cover the following areas:
- How you think staff could develop better rapport with the person?
- What you feel may be barriers to creating rapport with the person?
- What would you advise all staff to do and/or say in order to remove these barriers (refer to how people speak to the person, how they work with the person etc)?
Discuss your ideas with a colleague and write a short summary of your conversation.
Submit this along with learning activities 7-9 from this chapter to apply for the open badge for this chapter.
