This qualification is designed to provide training for people who may need to use
physical intervention skills in the workplace to deal with people who display
‘challenging’, aggressive or violent behaviour. It is aimed at people who have
already taken some form of conflict management training (involving non-physical ways of managing and avoiding conflict), but whose job roles mean that they also need training in disengagement and physical intervention skills that range from the non-restrictive (for low-level challenging behaviour) to the restrictive (for higher level challenging, aggressive or violent behaviour).
This unit covers the knowledge related to which restrictive physical interventions should be avoided. Learners will also develop practical skills in using restrictive physical intervention skills.
People working with service-users who present a risk of displaying physically
challenging or violent behaviour may need to use restrictive physical intervention skills as part of an overall strategy for preventing and managing physically challenging or violent behaviour. It is better not to use these techniques if at all possible. Learners should already have looked at ways of pre-empting and avoiding conflict (Disengagement and Non-restrictive Methods of Physical Intervention Units 1 and 2, Days 1 and 2 of this course). However, when it becomes necessary, they will need to achieve an acceptable level
of competency in using restrictive physical intervention skills in various situations.
This unit equips learners with skills that can be used in situations, and with service users, that are more physically challenging and consequently, the physical intervention skills learned are ‘restrictive’ ie force is used to restrict a person’s movement. It is vital that they also learn about the high-risk techniques that should be avoided and the reasons for this. These are typically techniques that interfere with breathing, circulation or where there is risk of injury or harm.
Learners must already have completed either Unit 1 or Unit 2 as well as
Unit 3 before taking this unit.
