Positive Behaviour Management Pro (PBMpro) has been certified by BILD ACT and complies with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards. The current certification is valid until 31 October 2025 and is re-certified every three years.
PBMpro is more than a physical intervention package. Its introduction and implementation, particularly when used to dovetail with Positive Behaviour Support, will help transform your organisation’s approach towards reducing restrictive practices.
It is an ethical training programme focused on cultural change and imbued with a commitment to respect for people being supported. It is well established and has evolved in line with developments in the sector. It began as, and remains, a pioneering method which rejects the use of punishment and the use of pain-based physical intervention techniques.
It has been a powerful influence in shaping staff attitudes and improving the quality of life for vulnerable people in services who are at risk of restrictive practice. Please take a moment to read through our testimonials to see first hand the positive impacts experienced by a sample of our long-term customers.

PBMpro training is available in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Europe for working with adults and children.
PBMpro is one of the very few UK or international reactive strategy training approaches to have any supporting peer review research into its effectiveness.
PBMpro care staff full course – the full course addresses all parts of a PBS plan including:
• Primary prevention strategies (proactive interventions that effectively make the behaviour redundant)
• Secondary prevention strategies (changing the course of already triggered behavioural episodes through effective early intervention)
• Reactive strategies (ethical and safe approaches to those behavioural challenges which may not be preventable and require physical intervention)
PBMpro care staff foundation course – this one-day course is suitable for staff working in very low risk services.
PBMpro trainer course – larger organisations can train their own associate (in-house) trainers through our CPD-approved trainer programme.
