BILD/RRN certified Positive Behaviour Management - staff training

Positive Response Training & Consultancy
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

PBMpro provides further information on PBS primary prevention strategies by:

  • Delivering a reminder/refresher of what we mean by challenging behaviour, how the behavioural model works and what the PBS model entails
  • Exploring the critical ingredients for reducing the use of restrictive practices in services
  • Examining the opportunities for proactive intervention during the course of challenging incidents
  • Analysing the key role of communication
  • Looking at trauma-informed PBS interventions
  • Understanding how to measure the impact of PBS support plans

Whereas Positive Approaches PBS training looks in more depth at organisational and user-level primary prevention strategies, PBMpro majors on providing in-depth training on secondary prevention (looking at different ways to change the course of behavioural episodes by effective early intervention) and reactive strategies (ethical and safe approaches to those behavioural challenges which may not be preventable).

The physical intervention component focuses on the use of personal space and breakaway techniques together with a limited number of restraint procedures (if required), all supported by underpinning knowledge and values stemming from evidence-based practice and empirical research. None of our techniques employ pain to achieve compliance and known high-risk procedures are avoided.

PBMpro is delivered extensively across the UK and is one of the very few UK or international reactive strategy training approaches to have any supporting peer review research into its effectiveness. Published outcomes include:

  • Lower rates of restraint use
  • Lower rates of emergency medication use
  • Reduced injuries to staff
  • Reduced injuries to service users
  • Increased staff confidence and knowledge

Positive Behaviour Management Pro (PBMpro) has been assessed by BILD ACT (Association of Certified Training) and complies with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards. The certification is valid until November 2022. Certified training will be a requirement for NHS commissioned services and the Care Quality Commission from April 2020.

All participants are recommended to undertake our Positive Approaches Training in addition to PBMpro Training in order to develop a complete knowledge of essential supports for people with behavioural challenges.

PBMpro training is available for the following service user groups:

  • Adults with intellectual disabilities or autism
  • Adults with acquired brain injury
  • Adults with mental health needs
  • Older people with dementia
  • Children & Young People
  • Child & Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS)

The care staff training course is delivered on-site or at a local venue of your choice. The initial course is 1, 2.5 or 3 days depending on the type of service and the range of techniques required and the annual refresher is up to one day.
