The course is delivered over Varies
Our group training is offered for 3-12 attendees per trainer
What is covered:
One 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.
It then teaches staff physical techniques including disengagement and defence techniques, for varying risk levels and situations.
Two day course
The content covered follows the same outline as the one 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 defensive techniques and gives staff more time to practice and absorb the techniques taught.
These techniques are currently being taught to various personnel working within the NHS, residential & nursing homes, schools, foster care and other organisations.
The physical intervention techniques taught on the course have been independently medically risk assessed by the Institute Of Conflict Management and incorporates techniques that are taught within the guide lines of :-
- NHS Protect
- BILD (British Institute of Learning Disabilities)
- Department of Education
- Department of Health
- Standards of other commercially driven training systems that teach control & restraint and physical intervention techniques
- Skills for Health
- Skills for Care.
Practical skills will be taught within the context of the dynamic risk assessment and the focus of the techniques taught will vary on the organisational needs (e.g primary school setting will be different to adult mental health).
