GSA Breakaway and Personal Safety Course

Breakaway Training is about providing a set series of skills and knowledge to keep your staff safe in their line of work against violent and aggressive behaviours.

Our Breakaway & Personal Safety training programmes are individually tailored for Health & Social Care, Education services and Childcare.

Our techniques are based on a pain-free approach to personal safety, respecting the care environment in which they are used.

We believe that whilst staff safety is of the utmost importance, when working with children or adults with behavioural disturbances, maintaining a therapeutic relationship should remain at the centre of behaviour management.

GSA Full PMVA Restraint Course

Put your service user at the centre of a physical intervention training program that focuses on not just safety and security, but on understanding and reducing violent and aggressive behaviour.

Reduce litigation and service user complaints by adopting a restraint reduction strategy that is derived from current legislation, guidance and best practice including the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007) and the latest Code of Practice (2015) as well as the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and The upcoming Use of Force in Mental Health Units legislation.

Based on a 'pain free' methodology, our restraint techniques are designed to support those that may be affected by behavioural disturbances rather than punish.

We will develop your bespoke training programme following a consultation to determine the level and type of restraint may be necessary.

Included in our Physical Intervention (PMVA) courses are theory presentations on De-Escalation and the Physical and Psychological Risks of restraint to ensure that all staff using the skills do so in a therapeutic and supportive manner.
