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:

  1. Neuropsychological assessment of the client’s cognitive and behavioural functioning
  2. 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
  3. Consultation regarding the provision of psychoeducation and support to family caregivers
