Course Overview

At CALM, we believe that the safest intervention is the one you never have to apply.  

We believe there is always a reason for the distress which presents as behaviour that challenges; that skilled support and planning is the key to humanely working with such distress; and that restrictive physical interventions should only ever be used as a last resort. 

CALM’s approach is always to reduce the use of restrictive interventions placing emphasis on primary prevention and strategic approaches. We have supported organisations to successfully reduce their use of restrictive interventions for over 20 years. We can help you too.

What Others Say

” This course was nothing like I expected, I normally find training courses quite boring but this has been transformative. There are so many aspects of what I have learned about the importance and value of relationships with the people we support and also with my colleagues that I am going to take back to my workplace and everyday practice commitments. “

” I didn’t realise that so little has been done to safeguard vulnerable people with regard to the use of restrictive interventions – the lack of mandatory guidance and enforcement of standards, the poor quality of research, the partisan views – all makes you think that what we have been carrying out is a massive experiment – with the vulnerable people we support as the guinea pigs. It’s clear that CALM are passionate about trying to change this, I will certainly be doing more too “
