This program is considered to be essential to the service industry when dealing with aggressive and or violent clients. It introduces the participants to the concept of self-protection, disengaging skills and the principles of the use of physical intervention in a continuum in various direct care service settings. This program is structured to incorporate both a theoretical as well as an experiential learning process for participants. An understanding of the Legislative policies and procedures regarding the use of Behaviour Management Intervention Strategies is required for frontline workers to effectively manage client behaviour.
This program includes learning outcomes in both vocational and generic skill areas. These are consistent with Provincial Standards for frontline service.
