Emergency Physical Intervention
This course introduces principles of emergency physical intervention in the context of a relational culture. Participants review the stages of escalation and practice physical skills to minimize and/or evade potential of injury. Participants also practice physical skills for emergencies involving an imminent threat to physical safety when other non-coercive methods are clearly ineffective. Special focus is on the impact of trauma, minimizing risk exposure, and best practices for reducing the duration, intensity, and frequency of physical restraint.
