Our PMVA Physical Intervention training is provided under the GSA model and is widely recognised as one of the best frameworks for managing and reducing challenging behaviour.
This refersher course is 1 day. Learnes attending this course must have completed a GSA course within the last 12- 15 months to be eligible to attend.
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 important to services to avoid the emergence of abusive practice.
Used throughout the NHS and private sectors in health and social care, education and childcare, our PMVA training puts the service user at the centre of their behaviour while helping staff to understand that behaviour and work towards reducing it before restraint and restrictive practice becomes necessary.
Based on a ‘pain-free’ methodology, our restraint techniques are designed to support those that may be affected by behavioural disturbances rather than punish.
Our PMVA tutors are fully qualified GSA trainers and have over a decade 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.
