All P&I programmes are designed to support the reduction in risk of physical intervention.

De-escalation and non-contact methods of resolving incidents are at the forefront of the P&I philosophy.

P&I training programmes share skills, techniques and scenarios to promote these non-contact methods to resolving incidents.

Following the exhausting of de-escalation techniques P&I understand that, on occasion, the presenting behaviour can reach a level where physical intervention is necessary to maintain safety for all involved.

Safety when engaging a young person is of paramount importance. Any programme delivered by P&I that involves guidance on physical intervention will have the holds presented as only part of a holistic approach to behaviour management.

Physical intervention represents only a tiny part of your day to day involvement with children and young people but it is often the most dangerous part when intervening during an incident.

During the 1 day programme in de-escalation and physical intervention, the holds will take up approximately 2 hours of the training to ensure safety messages are conveyed clearly, and the trainee leaves with a good understanding of how to engage a young person physically, in the safest possible way.

The health and safety of employees who are carrying out the training is embedded in each programme. Risk assessment and a duty of care feature heavily in our programmes with guidance of best practice given throughout. The best practice is based on guidelines by government departments.

Much of the training delivered by P&I is based on the staff member remaining in control of themselves during moments of crisis or challenging situations.

P&I Tutors will do everything possible to enhance your training by using humour in what is a very serious subject.

Training will be very much focused on a team approach to behaviour management and is often regarded as a team building day.
