Predictors of interventions for challenging behavior by residential service providers were examined.
Three forms of intervention investigated were (a) Individualized Habilitation Plan (IHP) objectives concerning challenging behavior, (b) one-to-one crisis intervention in the preceding 30 days, and (c) services from behavior management professionals in the preceding 6 months.
Findings across these three interventions were largely consistent.
Externalized challenging behavior (outwardly directed aggressive or disruptive behavior aimed at other people or objects) was consistently associated with all interventions.
The implications of these findings for service providers and service users are discussed.
