Teachers want to teach. They want to use the skills and knowledge and passion they have to maximise the potential of every child in their classroom or school. Behaviour that challenges can lead to teachers feeling extraordinarily frustrated and feeling they cannot do their job. CALM get it. We understand the frustration and the anxiety. We’ve been those teachers searching for a better way to approach things.
CALM supports schools and teachers to understand and address the root causes of behaviour that challenges using a whole-school, public health approach through our uniquely integrative model. This model enables staff to make sense of the child’s behaviour and develop individual support plans to prevent, avert and more safely manage crisis. Such approaches promote and protect the human rights of both pupils and staff.
CALM supports Early Years providers and their staff to understand and address the root causes of behaviour that challenges using a whole-organisation, public health approach through our integrative practice model. A focus on attachment, trauma and nurture enables staff to make sense of challenging situations and to develop child-centred plans to prevent, avert and more safely manage crisis.View

In the aftermath of a serious incident, organisations have duties to the people they support, their staff and regulators. De-briefing can play a significant role in meeting such duties, supporting staff, promoting reflection and accountability, maximising learning, reducing the likelihood of further incidents and ultimately improving the service.View
CALM works with many service sectors including some of the largest housing service providers, further education provision and customer service staff. Within many sectors including social care there has been a fundamental shift from staff working in buildings and in teams to staff increasingly working on their own. This can lead to staff feeling less safe and a need for organisations to develop new and different approaches to risk. Getting this right matters.View
