Join the National Leadership Consortium and Benchmark Human Services for this virtual Workshop

Even the best provider agencies often struggle to provide quality lives to people with significantly challenging behaviors or challenging reputations. This workshop will allow your agency to plan to expand the range of people you are able to successfully support. The training is for professionals at all levels within organizations to enhance their competence and confidence to be better able to serve people who have challenging reputations, potentially dangerous behaviors, and/or forensic backgrounds. This hands-on, practical training series will benefit administrators, program directors and people responsible for developing or implementing behavior programs. The training is also geared to assist state agency staff and staff of other funding or oversight agencies who would like to see more providers in their state develop their capacity to serve people with intensive behavioral support needs.
