The primary emphasis is prevention and non-physical interventions. Knowing the child, acting on “early warning signs”, and the effective use of calming and de-escalation techniques are some key strategies. The secondary emphasis is defensive techniques (avoidance, releases, blocks) coupled with calming and de-escalation techniques. The tertiary emphasis is safe restraint methods (an absolute last resort rarely required by most staff) coupled with calming and de-escalation techniques.
This is a program written by educators for educators for use in schools, and emphasizes prevention (rather than control) of disruptive behaviour. This training is linked to educational policies and programs, supports Special Education protocols, advocates a systems/community of learners. (Training will be provided by Behaviour Management Systems and this description is taken from their website).
To be held at Toronto District Christian High School, Woodbridge ON, 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
