Key Points

• 'Challenging behaviour' is a complex term to define and understand; it is a term that is used often and can lead to prejudgements and stigmatisation.

• Challenging behaviour is functional; it may be an indication of physical discomfort, pain, emotional distress, mental illness or conflicts in the person's environment.

• A person's behaviour will be defined as challenging when it is judged by another to be socially unacceptable and when it evokes significant negative emotional responses in the other.

• Long-term, effective support for carers working with adults with learning disabilities with challenging behaviour is essential, as working in these situations is often stressful and difficult.
