Positive behavioral supports is a behavior management system used to understand what maintains an individual’s challenging behavior. People’s inappropriate behaviors are difficult to change because they are functional.
I've worked in collaboration with AG Psychology Centre since 2019 through clinical supervision and consultancy to develop Corimaz, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of the elderly in different conditions and promoting bonds between generations. AGPC input made a difference to our clinical approach, lending guidance and resources of great value, always with great professionalism and generosity. We have also worked together providing staff training in the field of the use of music and life stories to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their carers. It has been an enriching and invaluable experience. I highly recommend AGPC for any clinician or professional interested in developing the best practices for their beneficiaries.

We truly recommend the in-house training in Dementia Care that we received from Azucena Guzman. She provided a lot of different aids to help our staff team have a better understanding of how to work with our residents, improving their quality of life. We will certainly keep working with her to train the rest of our staff.

I reached out to Dr Guzman for her assistance and support in recording and documenting my academic and clinical skills. Dr Guzman was incredibly helpful in providing guidance and consultancy in this area. Her ability to understand my needs and to give precise and timely advice has been invaluable to my current work. Dr Guzman was candid and realistic while leaning on her many years of experience as an academic and Clinical Psychologist. She was warm and encouraging and I am hoping to reap the benefits of her input. Thanks, Azu.

Through Clinical Supervision sessions Azu's encouragement and guidance is supporting me to develop my therapeutic and reflective skills as an aspiring Clinical Psychologist. Azu is an exceptionally compassionate person who is warm and easy to connect with. She provides positive encouragement and as result our supervision sessions feel like a safe space for me to reflect. I really value the working relationship we have and would highly recommend AG Psychology Centre to everyone.

My six sessions with Dr Guzman were consistently helpful and informative to improve my mental health. I now regularly use many of the techniques we discussed

Azu's knowledge of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology application process from start to finish has been invaluable in preparing me for my second application later this year. Azu's critique has helped me to refine my written application to highlight my relevant experience and skills in the best way possible. I came away from my first consultation with Azu with clear goals as to what I could do to improve my application as well as a greater confidence in myself.
