A blog from D.escal8 about the use of the term challenging behaviour. The blog is introduced here….
Challenging Behaviour is a term the healthcare sector has misused for years.

The healthcare sector recognised that the term had become associated with some very negative connotations and therefore should not, in good conscience, be given to an individual.
