Breakaway and Restraint Techniques in Child Care Settings and Schools
This is a two or three day Breakaway & Restraint Techniques course for child care settings and schools that explores the six stages of managing aggression and challenging behaviour from understanding the causes of and reducing challenging behaviour, de-escalating aggressive behaviour, physical and non-physical defensive strategies, guiding techniques and control & restraint /safer-holding techniques.
The course will be individually tailored to support any issues arising in all aspects within child care and schools.
Two day course
This course explores the causes of challenging behaviour within child care settings and schools 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, defence techniques, basic guiding and holding/restraint techniques for varying risk levels and situations.
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.
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).
