  • Safeguarding, Duty of Care and Duty of Candour
  • What is Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)?
  • Developing proactive (primary) strategies aimed at prevention - specifically covering Environment & Structure, Communication and Attitudes

  • Developing a positive (therapeutic) relationship
  • De-escalation skills (secondary intervention)
  • Developing person-centred distraction/diversion strategies (secondary strategies)
  • Reactive (tertiary) strategies aimed at ensuring safety in response to behaviours of concern
  • Non-restrictive reactive (tertiary) strategies
  • The law and how it relates to responding to behaviours of concern
  • Specific national guidelines on responding to behaviours of concern
  • Gradients of control
  • Breakaway and self-protection skills

 

The course and its theoretical content are based on the latest research evidence and includes universally recognised models that assist in our undertanding of human behaviour.

 

There is a strong emphasis on preventative (proactive) strategies throughout the course.

 

Under the RRN Training Standards, the course can accommodate a maximum of 18 participants per trainer although we recommend an ideal group size of 12.

 

The physical skills include:

  • breakaways from grabs to the arms/wrists, clothing and hair
  • airway protection
  • a biting release
  • a basic guard and evasion technique

The physical skills are simple to learn and highly effective when used in practice.

 

NB In some circumstances, it is possible to extend the range of physical skills to meet the needs of the commissioning service(s) and the people it supports.  Please contact us to discuss this further - we are confident we can find solutions to meet your training needs.
