This course will enable staff to understand their safety within the workplace. Through the use of personal safety physical skills and underpinning knowledge of the law and the right to use force, staff will learn how to disengage from an attack safely.
The course is one day that can be offered as a standalone certificated course or as part of a full PMVA course.
This course will give staff both the knowledge about the law and protecting themselves, as well as the physical skills to keep themselves safe in hostile and aggressive situations.
Our techniques are based on a pain-free approach to personal safety, respecting the service users rights.
We believe that whilst staff safety is of the utmost importance when working with children or adults with behavioural disturbances, maintaining a therapeutic relationship should remain at the centre of behaviour management.
We can develop a bespoke training programme based on the type of breakaway techniques which may be necessary for your staff.
Our PMVA tutors are fully qualified GSA trainers. They have over a decade of experience in both the use of the training in secure services and in teaching the subject, using real experiences and underpinning knowledge to embed the learning.
