Summary & Booking
The Breakaway Training level 2 & 3 course covers the difficult subject of de-escalating behaviour and understanding the psychology of aggression. In addition, we cover a basic range of breakaway techniques. These techniques are all non-pain based, and therefore do not inflict pain. It includes the role of risk assessments and emphasises that these interventions are at the end of the intervention spectrum.
This course is mapped to the NICE quality standards for behaviour management and the restraint reduction network standards.
The breakaway training component involves a competency assessment and staff will be required to practise these techniques and will be assessed in their competency. In addition, there is a short assessment of learning for audit and CQC evidence.
The level 2 programme is a half-day, suitable for introduction and refresher training.
The level 3 is a full day programme that goes into the subject in more depth.
