- Adapting the environment if it's found that any aspect triggers challenging behaviour.
- Changing routines if any aspect is found to trigger challenging behaviour
- Have policies and procedures in place that help colleagues deal - reactively with incidents of conflict and reporting causes/triggers.
- Having training information that helps staff identify triggers, mitigate/minimise risks and manage challenging behaviour appropriately
