About this Masterclass
Everyone working in schools can expect to encounter students whose behaviour can escalate to a point where they lose control. There are theories around changes to experience of childhood that may be contributing to this, including a reduction in communication skills, which can lead to high levels of frustration.
Nationally there are concerns around increasing numbers of exclusions and the failure of services to meet the mental health needs of young people. Students of all ages are reporting difficulties with managing their anger, and staff are dealing with an increasing range of complex behaviours.
This course is all about developing strategies and skills to respond to those challenging behaviours. There is an emphasis on de-escalation throughout. This course is concerned primarily with safety, and is designed to raise the confidence of participants by giving them the understanding of how and when to intervene.
The situations where restraint might be used will be discussed and explored and the legal side of intervention will be covered.
