Prevention & Management of Violence and Aggression
Wed, 3 May 2017, 09:00 – Fri, 5 May 2017, 17:00 BST
Following the principles of the current NICE guidelines 2015 this three-day course is based on a person centred approach to conflict and difficult behaviour using the Able 6-Stage Target Model of proactive and responsive service delivery and emphasising the use of physical intervention and restraint as a last resort. The training meets NHS protect standards in conflict resolution and physical intervention.
This course is aimed at high risk environments which require staff to step past the lower risk techniques due to the level of aggression or situation.
It 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.
Over the first two days the 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, defence techniques, basic guiding and holding/restraint techniques for varying risk levels and situations.
On day three, advanced techniques that are taught include relocating from the floor, floor holds and higher risk standing restraints.
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 guidelines of:
