The goal of the Behavioural Consultation service is to improve the ability of Baycrest teams to manage responsive behaviours associated with cognitive impairment through non-pharmacological means, and ultimately to improve the quality of service provided to clients.
Our psychologists provide consultation to the Behavioural Neurology Unit, the Pamela & Paul Austin Centre for Neurology & Behaviour Support, and the Behaviour Support Outreach Teams.
Within these teams, behavioural consultation services include:
- Neuropsychological assessment of the client’s cognitive and behavioural functioning
- Formulation of integrated behaviour care plans, in conjunction with the clinical team, using interventions that are informed by the client’s cognitive and behavioural profile, and personal history
- Consultation regarding the provision of psychoeducation and support to family caregivers
