Challenging Behaviour Training for Community and Residential Care Settings
Care professionals are striving to provide the best care for service users who have varied and often complex needs. At the same time they are challenged to manage, with limited resources, a significant percentage of entry level staff and increasing regulation and standards.
Reducing challenging behaviour, reducing restraint, reducing the risks
Training is a vital ingredient needed to improve the quality of care and to reduce risks to service users, staff and the organisation itself. To be effective Maybo believes that training in this area must be:
- Person centred, with the focus on the individual needs of each service user
- Based on caring values that promote respect for the individual and a reduction of conflict and challenging behaviour through developing positive behavioural supports, interactions and relationships
- Relevant to the service users that staff support
- Focused on restraint reduction and restraint elimination
Maybo helps care professionals to meet duty of care and regulatory requirements in a way that promotes positive values and positive change in behaviours. Our models and learning methods integrate primary and secondary strategies for preventing and defusing conflict and positive behaviour support through simple and engaging methods that work for staff at different learning stages.
Physical interventions and reducing restraint
In some, more challenging contexts we provide a unique low arousal physical intervention skills set that is consistent with positive care values. It builds confidence and reduces risks for all involved, whilst being highly effective. Our focus is on teaching safer methods and, more importantly, targeting a reduction in restrictive practices with an end goal of restraint elimination wherever practicable.
BILD Accredited physical intervention training (BILD PIAS)
We have achieved BILD accreditation for our work within adult and children’s services and now partner some of the largest care providers across a full range of therapeutic services in the UK and Australia. We support businesses, government and voluntary organisations that want to do things even better. Our belief is that the BILD standards represent a starting point for best practice and have value and relevance in the wider Community & Residential Care field.
Maybo has an extensive range of flexible learning solutions which allow us to respond to the unique needs and constraints faced by each care provider with whom we work. Our specialist care team, led by a registered mental health nurse, will help you to develop blended and integrated strategies delivering consistent core messages, with the flexibility to adapt to the unique needs of each service and service user through our coaching and problem solving model and work based learning resources. We will help you and your staff to reduce and eliminate restraint wherever possible.
