The authors evaluate a small pilot project which used psychology graduates in a dual support worker/psychology assistant role to support people whose behaviour is challenging. Although there was a reduction in challenging behaviour, improvement in staff practice and increase in enjoyable activities outside of the home, there were limitations with recording methods and external factors, such as service reorganisation, which made it difficult to demonstrate these improvements across all services.
