Physical Intervention training makes delegates aware of how challenging behaviour can begin and escalate in the workplace. They will understand their responsibilities for ensuring the safety of all staff and thus will also learn a range of holding and breakaway techniques which they may need to apply should they ever need to intervene in a physically challenging situation. This course is designed for all staff to ensure a high level of workplace safety and can be adapted to suit any sector, including care and those who look after behaviourally challenging patients.
Physical intervention Skills may be needed in some care environments to manage challenging behaviour safely. Depending on the risks faced in the role this can involve anything from avoidance and disengagement skills for those in community environments through to rescue, escorting and holding skills, which may be particularly relevant in mental health and learning disability, care and residential settings. We can offer you a bespoke designed programme at your venue aimed towards your individual organisation needs.
