Physical Intervention Training


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.
