Challenging behaviour following acquired brain injury (ABI) typically leads to severely depleted life role participation – the outcomes of which include boredom, loneliness and a sense of hopelessness. Sue will reflect on stories of people living in shared supported accommodation to draw connections between the themes of behaviour, participation and relationships between residents and staff. The focus will be on keys to success in building pro-social behaviour and role participation.
