Behaviour Support Practitioner
Fintan has been working as a Positive Behaviour Support Practitioner at Multicap Tasmania since the beginning of 2021 after completing his Bachelor of Psychological Science and working as a Disability Support Worker for four years. Since that time he has been able to establish positive working relationships with a broad and diverse client base spanning from Latrobe to Smithton and everywhere between - working with young, middle aged, and mature aged clients alike.
Fintan’s passion lies in the process of discovering the unique historical, biological, psychological, and social factors relevant to each Client, and using that knowledge to tailor a Behaviour Support Plan to the individual’s unique situation, needs, and goals. Fintan hopes to continue to utilise a multidisciplinary approach to achieve improvement in his clients’ quality of life, independence and functional capacity via research-informed environmental and behavioural strategies.
Behaviour Support Practitioner
Andy has a Bachelor in Behavioural Science (Psych) and is a Registered Behaviour Technician (BACB), and continues to complete BSP specific professional development training regularly.
With a passion for helping others, which was the drive behind achieving my degree, I am always looking to improve my practice with professional development.
I hope to lead the way in improving the lives of those living with a disability, by not only improving their independence, but educating others on how to see, and interact with the person behind the disability.
Andy takes pride in his approach to behaviour support utilising a biopsychosocial lens and basing his clinical reasoning on empirically evidenced theory to support a person centred and dynamic case formulation process that is based on current observations and evidence directly relevant to the client. Andy also believes in a ‘wholistic’ approach to client care, particularly where behaviour is concerned.
“It is only through an interdisciplinary professional collaboration that best practice can truly be achieved for the client”.
