    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    'Socially constructed’,  behaviour can be caused or created because of someone’s social environment, or it can be viewed ________ because the norms of behaviour in that particular society do not allow for it.

    • A.

      Negatively

    • B.

      Positively

    Correct Answer
    A. Negatively
    Explanation
    Behaviour can be viewed negatively if it goes against the norms of a particular society. In such cases, the society may disapprove or stigmatize the behavior, leading to negative consequences for the individual exhibiting it. This suggests that the behavior is socially constructed, as it is influenced by the social environment and the norms that exist within it.

    B. Is defined as challenging by people, in certain situations and circumstances.
    C. Is dealt with in different ways, depending on these social situations and circumstances.
    Explanation
    Challenging behavior is not a specific illness or condition, but rather a behavior that occurs in specific situations and circumstances. It is defined as challenging by people in these situations and circumstances. Furthermore, the way in which challenging behavior is addressed can vary depending on the social situations and circumstances. This suggests that challenging behavior is not a fixed or universal concept, but rather something that is subjective and context-dependent.

    Positive behaviour support is key to success when helping to support a person who presents challenging behaviour.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Positive behaviour support is key to success when supporting a person who presents challenging behaviour because it focuses on understanding the underlying reasons for the behavior and implementing strategies that promote positive alternatives. This approach emphasizes building a supportive and inclusive environment, teaching appropriate skills, and using positive reinforcement to encourage desired behaviors. By addressing the root causes of challenging behavior and providing appropriate support, positive behavior support can lead to better outcomes and improved quality of life for individuals with challenging behavior.
