Although the use of restraint with vulnerable populations is sometimes controversial, it is nonetheless a necessary tool to ensure the protection of clients and staff. A behavior analytic approach to crisis management and the use of restraint can help ensure that immobilization techniques are structured to allow individual choice and learning to take place even during a crisis. A thorough understanding of the causes of behavior and their maintaining variables can help guard against potential side effects of restraint use that make problems more severe.

During this webinar we:

  • Explain the relationship between movement and crisis duration
  • Explain how lengthy release criteria removes the ability for the individual to learn to terminate restraint
  • Discuss 2 factors that can increase the use of escorts and immobilizations
Date: On-Demand
Duration: 1 hour
