Behaviour interventions

Our behaviour intervention aims to address the child or young person’s underlying needs, and views behaviour as an indicator rather than a cause. Behaviour interventions are particularly useful for conditions like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). At HSR Psychology, we provide a range of behaviour interventions to improve the lives of individuals.

Our process

At HSR Psychology we ensure that we meet the needs of children and young people. To achieve this we ensure that any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work, is only carried out following an initial discussion.

An initial discussion allows us to understand the background and your expectations of our involvement. Having an initial discussion ensures any services we provide appropriately identify or address needs.

Our process for any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work is as follows:

Step 1: Contact us

We will usually be contacted by the child or young person, parent or carer, or another professional (eg education or health).

You can contact us or complete a referral

What happens during a behaviour intervention?

A behaviour intervention can involve a range of possibilities. The individual will begin to understand how their thoughts and feelings are linked to their behaviour. The child or young person will then discuss what they can do to adapt their behaviour to be happy, safe and ready for life’s challenges. The individual may discuss particular scenarios which they find difficult to handle and find alternative ways of coping. The individual will learn different coping strategies e.g. self-calming techniques, which they will be encouraged to practice in day-to-day life and then reflect on. The specialist can work with parents/carers and school staff to help implement useful strategies for the child or young person outside of intervention sessions. 

What happens after a behaviour intervention?

After a behaviour intervention the child or young person should be able to adapt their behaviours to achieve their goals. Following a behaviour intervention it may be suggested that follow up sessions are scheduled, if necessary. Outcomes from a behaviour intervention can be provided through a single feedback session, or a thorough written report if needed. The support we provide will continue throughout the whole process which is why we always give you the option to receive post-intervention support.

Does a behaviour intervention come with a report?

A written report can be provided following a behaviour intervention which will outline effective strategies to maximise the child or young person’s potential. We always recommend a comprehensive report following an intervention, which includes what took place, the results of our involvement and detailed recommendations for the future. Find out more about our reports and what they can offer.
