Providing positive behavioural support services: specialist challenging behaviour support teams
Method and materials: The article reviews the rise and fall of specialist challenging behaviour support teams and describes an up-to-date replication and innovation of the service model.
Results: As a multiple stakeholder approach, PBS delivery is likely to require focused collaborations between the focus person, persons who know the focus person and setting well, and persons who possess high-level technical skills.
Conclusions: The peripatetic behaviour support team may provide an effective and replicable model for delivering technical assistance, and for further innovation and development.

- Positive behavioural support (PBS) combines the conceptual framework of applied behaviour analysis with the values base of social role valorisation and framework of person-centred approaches. The International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support is a peer-reviewed publication that aims to:
· define and promote good practice in relation to the use of PBS
· add to the evidence base regarding such interventions
· demonstrate how PBS interventions can support people to change their challenging behaviours, improve their quality of life, and result in reductions in the use of restrictive procedures (such as physical intervention, seclusion and as required medication)· bridge the gap between academic research and service practice
