Positive Management of Violence and Aggression Course

All the training refers to those aspects of a person’s behaviour that can be attributed to the presence of a specific genetic or biological anomaly or condition. We can expect people with certain conditions to have a tendency towards certain types of behaviour. This might mean altering the way we do things to accommodate the types of behaviour.

This can also have an effect on the way in which we support the individual. The training addresses alternative approaches in positive behaviour support with physical intervention only as a last result if everything else has failed.

The training will be in modules. These can be taught on their own or consecutively as a block course.

The content of this course has been mapped over to the new BILD/RRN standards.
