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. PBMplus takes pride in delivering safe, ethical physical intervention training. None of our techniques use pain to achieve compliance and well-recognised high-risk restraint procedures are avoided.

The training course is delivered on-site or at a local venue of your choice for care staff teams. The initial course is 2-3 days depending on content and the annual refresher is 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.

Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards 2019

We are working with BILD ACT (Association of Certified Training) towards certification of our training as complying with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards (2019). Certification will be in process during late 2019.

The Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards 2019 have been written for training services delivered to education, health and social care services across the UK including services that support people with autism, learning disabilities, dementia and mental health conditions.

The Standards aim to facilitate culture change, not just technical competence. They are designed to:

• Protect people’s fundamental human rights and promote person centred best interest and therapeutic approaches to supporting people when they are distressed

• Improve the quality of life of those being restrained and those supporting them

• Reduce reliance on restrictive practices by promoting positive culture and practice that focuses on prevention, de-escalation and reflective practice

• Increase understanding of the root causes of behaviour and recognition that many behaviours are the result of distress due to unmet needs

• Where required, focus on the safest and most dignified use of restrictive interventions including physical restraint

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.
