The newly revised edition of this popular resource provides professional and home-based caregivers with easy-to-understand and powerfully effective ways to prevent, reduce, or eliminate the challenging behaviors of care recipients. Nearly 80% of long-term care residents exhibit some level of difficult behaviors stemming from a wide range of factors including depression, personal distress, declining physical function, or dementia. These behaviors occur as well in other settings, including assisted living as well as part of professionally provided home-based care programs. Caregivers will learn how to use this book's proven intervention tools and strategies to identify and satisfy the basic human needs that underlie challenging behaviors, as well as to encourage and reinforce positive behaviors.

With detailed vignettes illustrating the successful implementation of each recommended technique for addressing common challenging resident behaviors, this book also focuses on empowering caregivers to cope with the stress of their roles. Presented in a user-friendly style for anyone working in long-term care settings, Caring for People with Challenging Behaviors serves as both a self-study tool and a resource for in-service training.
