CMG hosted an innovative PBS Festival in September which gathered together industry professionals, journalists, and family members to engage in a variety of different talks and activities in a fun environment different to the usual corporate conference setting.
The Festival took place at the outdoors Walton Firs Activity Centre in Cobham, Surrey. An array of PBS presentations and chats where hosted by PBS professionals in festival yurts:
The Skills Tent
The Think Hut
The Talking Tent.
There was also mindfulness walks through the woods.
The aim of the event was for attendees to better understand a people’s behaviour and then use that knowledge to improve the person’s quality of life and decrease behaviours that challenge.
PBS has a solid evidence base. Over the last decade it has become increasingly recognised as the social care sector’s preferred approach to supporting adults and children with learning disabilities and autism.
