Group

This is a one or two day Managing Conflict & Breakaway Techniques course that explores the six stages of managing aggression and challenging behaviour. From understanding the causes of and reducing challenging behaviour, de-escalating aggressive behaviour to physical and non-physical defensive strategies.

Our training in the subject of managing difficult behaviours and aggression all follow the  Able 6-Stage Target Model which is based on the principles of positive behavioural support, pro-active and responsive strategies and de-escalation. It is a person centred approach suitable for both adult and child environments and adapts to fits all forms of environments and behaviours.

This training is currently taught to staff around the country to assist those working with dementia, mental health and/or substance misuse issues, clients with learning disabilities or autism and children with conduct disorders and behavioural issues. The Able system is praised for its simple but effective principles, its person centred approach and its adaptable design.

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 :-
