Vita’s clinical department offers in-house behavioural services. Vita is one of the few agencies whose policies on behaviour therapy include twelve ethical statements that guide the use of behavioural treatment. Our therapists are highly trained, qualified professionals who have access to both psychological and psychiatric supports. Our behavioural approaches are positively based and are aimed at managing behaviour, increasing skills and developing potential in a wide range of areas including socio-sexual skills. Understanding the function of that behaviour allows us to develop alternate means for an individual to achieve desired goals. Our behavioural team provides education to our staff through direct training and through ‘all staff’ articles on issues regarding providing positive support. These articles are now provided to agencies throughout the province.
