Author name: Dermot Rafter

I am a Behaviour Support Specialist living in Wexford and working in the South East of Ireland. I have over 25 years experience in working on individual support and organisation development with qualifications and competencies in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS); Person Centred Practice (PCP); Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA); and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I am also a trained instructor in non-violent verbal and physical intervention strategies. In addition to my skills as a Behaviour Support Specialist I have also developed this UPR model of Positive Behaviour Support. The UPR Model assists any agency, voluntary or full time, who experience behaviours that challenge. I have also devised many other programmes in the areas of teenage behavioural support; mindfulness; and youth leadership. Contact me at any time for an informal discussion on the benefits of this both for staff and clients alike. I look forward to being of service to you.
