This session describes the development of Behavioural Supports Ontario’s (BSO) Specialized Social Therapist role and its focus on TR’s important contributions in the reduction of responsive behaviours. We examine responsive behaviours and their potential causes as they relate to residents living with dementia and/or mental health conditions in long-term care homes (LTCH). We consider personhood and how program modifications can increase the inclusion of residents with responsive behaviours in meaningful, social and practical day-to-day programming. The session includes an experiential component involving fictional case studies and potential recreation recommendations based on personhood, skills, interests and responsive behaviours. Participants will be able discuss ideas and share current programming techniques in their LTCH that are successful with these and other marginalized populations.
