Positive Behaviour Management Plus

PBMplus 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.

Training support

We can supply a PBM trainer on a daily rate basis. This service can be used if you do not have enough trainers to cover your training needs. Your existing trainer will run the training course, provide paperwork and resources etc and we will supply an extra trainer to assist with the delivery of the training.


Mentoring support

This service will assist recently qualified trainers to become established. In this case you will have two of your trainers running the course and our trainer would oversee the delivery of the training and provide advice and support.
