Our PMVA Physical Intervention training is provided under the GSA model. It is widely recognised as one of the best frameworks for managing and reducing challenging behaviour.
Our PMVA training is tailored to your service and can range from 1 day to 5 days- depending on what training your service needs.
The GSA and our training have always focused on a therapeutic approach to care and violence management by educating staff about challenging behaviour and the causes for it. In light of recent abuse scandals, this methodology has become ever more critical to services to avoid the emergence of abusive practice.
The Used throughout the NHS and private sector as well as education and childcare,
Our Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression training put the service user at the centre of their behaviour.
Our focus is on understanding the behaviour and working towards reducing it before restraint, and restrictive practice becomes necessary.
Our skills are ‘pain-free’, and our restraint techniques support those that may be affected by behavioural disturbances rather than punish.
Included in our all our Physical Intervention (PMVA) courses are theory presentations on Understanding Challenging Behaviour, De-Escalation and the Physical and Psychological Risks Of Restraint to ensure that all staff using the skills do so in a therapeutic, safe and supportive manner.
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.
