Physical Intervention and Positive Behaviour Support Training

For over 20 years PRICE has provided children’s residential services with training to positively manage challenging behaviour. We understand the complex requirements involved in caring for vulnerable children who often display behaviour which is difficult to cope with. Our BILD accredited courses help staff manage physically-challenging behaviour in the least restrictive way, focusing heavily on de-escalation and diversion techniques.

Our training enables your staff to:

  • prevent and de-escalate crises
  • understand the role of Positive behaviour support plans within a behaviour management framework
  • understand the causes of challenging behaviour and its functions
  • provide effective coping strategies for service users and support workers
  • reduce the need to rely on high-risk interventions
  • learn a range of breakaway and physical techniques

We offer two models of delivery for this training:

Participant model – one of our highly experienced BILD Acredited PRICE training Instructor’s deliver the course directly to those in your organisation who need the skills. If you are interested in this model you can find out more by clicking on the Participant courses from the list below.

Instructor model – you send a member of your staff to train to become a BILD approved in-house PRICE Instructor. Once qualified they can deliver bespoke training within your organisation to those who need it. You can train as many people as your organisation requires. If you’re interested in this model, you can find out more by clicking on the Instructor courses from the list below.

Choosing the right model for your organisation depends on a number of factors. Please visit our FAQs page for more guidance, or contact us to discuss your needs.

Foundations for best practice in children's homes

 

It goes without saying how hard so many residential care staff work, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our society, encountering daily challenges that little or no training could ever fully equip them for. The personal and emotional cost can sometimes be very high. 

Thus the Residential Care Matters (RCM) programme provides a ‘value base’ benchmark for staff teams and managers over a range of everyday topics with a focus on consistency of care. By building and maintaining a sound shared value base, a team can greatly improve the outcomes for children as well as improve workforce morale. 

Developed by a group of professionals who not only have a significant degree of expertise in social care and social work but a very real and everyday experience of working in children's homes, RCM courses are designed to be delivered either by one of our experienced trainers, ‘in house’ by a supervisor, manager or experienced support workers. No prior training experience is required.
