CALM start from the position that people whose distress may present as behaviour that challenges do not only have behaviours of concern. They have human rights, and relationships. They value connections, and need hope, inspiration and purpose in order to find new meaning in lives that have very often been affected by the multi-dimensional, inter-connected and often intergenerational nature of trauma.
Behaviours such as aggression, violence, and self-harm reflecting histories of neglect, abuse and trauma are not only distressing for those being supported but may also leave staff feeling frustrated, helpless and even frightened. CALM’s unique integrated approach provides practice models, comprehensive training solutions and effective strategies to prevent behaviour that challenges, de-escalate developing situations and manage crisis more safely.
This course is mapped against the current best practice guidance and is designed for staff in services supporting children or adults whose lives may have been affected by trauma.
Our digital learning environment will facilitate deep learning through a range of different exercises and modalities. With videos, podcasts, online assessment, reflective work, and lessons all hosted on an ultramodern learning platform, the CALM training experience and expertise is available at your fingertips.
