PBMplus Training

Positive Behaviour Management Plus is our non-aversive tried and tested BILD accredited training course and one of the very few UK or international reactive strategy training approaches to have any supporting peer review research into its effectiveness. It complements the PBS training course by providing more in-depth training on secondary prevention and then focusing on ethical and safe approaches to non-preventable challenging behaviours. The physical intervention component focuses on the use of personal space, breakaway techniques and a limited number of restraint procedures, should they be required, all supported by underpinning knowledge and values stemming from evidence-based practice and empirical research. None of our procedures uses pain to achieve compliance and known high-risk holds are avoided.

  • Children & Young People
  • Child & Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS)

The training course is delivered on-site or at a local venue of your choice for care staff teams or families. The initial course is 2-3 days depending on content and annual refreshers are up to one day.

If you have large staff groups you could train your own in-house trainers on our CPD approved 10 day trainer course so they can deliver the training internally for you.

Need an additional trainer?

We can supply one of our accredited PBMplus trainers on a daily rate basis. This service can be used if you do not have enough in-house PBMplus trainers to cover your training needs. Your own trainer will run the training course, provide paperwork and resources etc and we will supply an additional trainer to assist with the delivery of the training where two trainers are required.



Mentoring support

This service will assist recently qualified PBMplus trainers to become established. In this case your own trainers will run the course as normal and our accredited PBMplus trainer would oversee the delivery of the training and provide advice and support.
