Challenging Behaviour and Breakaway Techniques

Price per class:  £550


Carers and their clients sometimes come into conflict. Learn how to maintain your safety whilst also protecting your client.  This course is delivered in your workplace to a group of up to 15 learners.  Sufficient room must be provided to allow learners space to practice breakaway techniques.

Aims & Benefits Of Course:

This one-day duration course combines the knowledge of challenging behaviour and the triggers as well as teaching the breakaway techniques and practising them (repeatedly until they become an automatic reflex).

The course teaches just a few effective techniques that are simple to use and as safe as possible for both ‘you’ and the ‘client’. The techniques are easy to learn and (in many cases) can be used in a variety of different situations. Indeed, ONE technique that you will learn on this course can be used equally effectively against a grab, a shove, a punch and a strangle

  • The client’s body – where it should be – How to keep a safe distance between you and the client, and what you can do when physical contact is required.
