    What is covered:

    Two day course

    This course explores the causes of challenging behaviour within the required setting and pro-active strategies for reducing behaviours, de-escalation strategies for managing a situation once it has escalated, dynamic risk assessment principles to help staff recognise the appropriate course of action and then the law regarding physical intervention.

    Three day course

    The content covered follows the same outline as the 2 day course but each day is focused on the separate course modules. Day 1 is managing challenging behaviour and de-escalation, day two explores the law relating to physical intervention and teaches staff disengagement and restraint techniques and day three explores scenarios and situations and gives staff more time to practice and absorb the techniques taught.

    Four to five day courses

    The course content is as above but we include a full day of conflict management, managing challenging behaviour and de-escalation training before we progress to the physical skills. The physical skills training goes to a higher level of intensity exploring scenarios and situations and giving staff additional time to practice and improve their skills.
