Staff who participate in BMS training will possess a greater level of expertise in the management of both every day and critical incident behaviour. The primary emphasis is prevention and non-physical interventions. Knowing the child, acting on “early warning signs”, and the effective use of calming and de-escalation techniques are some key strategies. The secondary emphasis is defensive techniques (avoidance, releases, blocks) coupled with calming and de-escalation techniques. The tertiary emphasis is safe restraint methods (an absolute last resort rarely required by most staff) coupled with calming and de-escalation techniques.
This training is being provided by the WRDSB. Release time is provided (you will be paid!)
