Personal Emergency - February 8                                                                  

This training provides staff with safe and effective control procedures used as a last-resort in emergency crisis situations when less-restrictive options are designed to minimize the risk of injury and not cause pain. In addition to the physical procedures presented, the program emphasizes the importance of preventive strategies that reduce and eliminate the use of physical restraint.


Safety Techniques - February 15                                                        

This training presents safe and effective physical intervention techniques that are used in situations in which someone is being physically threatened or harmed and verbal intervention alone is not effective. Safety Techniques provide staff member with passive, evasive movements that protect and minimize the risk of injury to themselves, the individual and others.

Applying the concepts of positive behavior support and trauma-informed care, the program presents guidelines for positive interactions, antecedent strategies for preventing crisis, de-escalation techniques, relaxation strategies and counseling skills for crisis prevention.
