Key environmental risk factors that
can influence challenging behaviour are:
The physical environment that they are in, such as the
lighting it could be far too bright or far too dark. Heat being too hot or too
cold. The colours surrounding an individual may unsettle them subconsciously.
Certain smells may trigger past repressed memories.
Quality of the social environment, is the individual bored
where they are, have they been isolated/ placed in a secluded area. Do they get
support from the family or people they are living with, to they communicate
with those they are surrounded by? Loneliness by choice or though mistreatment.
Do they have a choice on how they conduct their daily lives, do they have
support regarding those choices?
Unfamiliar environments, does the individual even know what
is happening around them. Unpredictable occurrences because of an unfamiliar
territory. Confusion due to lack of communication through transitional
periods. Changes in routine due to unforeseen
circumstances or bad man management.
