Who is this training for?

Team Teach Positive Behaviour Training is for everyone from direct support staff including lone workers and social workers to clinicians, from carers to reception staff, all those who provide care and support in a setting where there are individuals who may present with behaviours of concern. This includes all health and social care settings, such as specialist mental health, learning disability and autism services, older adult provisions, secure units and supported living.

The Core Message

The core belief that informs our training is that all behaviour is communication. By understanding the motivations behind different behaviours we can de-escalate situations and create long term strategies to support positive behaviour cultures and reduce the need for physical restraint.

What You Will Learn

What You Will Learn

You will learn that a consistent approach in supporting people provides a stable and nurturing environment. We believe that all behaviour is communication being driven by experiences and emotions and our approach is 95% understanding behaviours, using preventative strategies and encouraging de-escalation. There may still be a need to manage physical risk on a variety of levels and you will learn how to safely apply fully risk assessed physical interventions.

Following a training needs analysis, we will create a bespoke set of modules that will equip everyone within the team with the confidence and strategies needed to support positive behaviour cultures.

Our training covers how to develop effective supports to help those in distress by :

• understanding behaviours and communication approaches

• considering the impact of trauma on an individual

• understanding the different stages of crisis and planning proactive responses to de-escalate and reduce conflict

• developing effective person-centred strategies to nurture positive behaviour environments

• by implementing legislative frameworks and guidance

• identifying risk behaviours and responding to distressed individuals appropriately and proportionately

• building and restoring relationships

• post incident support and learning

This is a one day (6 hour) course that is for staff and carers supporting individuals in health and social care organisations where there is a need to focus on de-escalation, risk prevention and non-restrictive strategies

Participants will gain a detailed understanding of the drivers behind behaviours of concern, and the legal context around behaviour support. It equips participants with strategies of communication and de-escalation, both verbal and non-verbal, for supporting people who present with distressed behaviours. It teaches simple and safe ways of working using a shared language to promote a consistent, respectful approach to behaviour support which maintains positive relationships. This course will provide everyone within the team with a good understanding of the values and philosophy of the Team Teach approach. Included in the strategies of de-escalation is understanding where someone may be in a crisis and how to support them using appropriate responses for that individual; how to practice relevant verbal scripts and respond to an identified need and support individuals in distress using a consistent team approach.

The course will also look at the legal framework and cover relevant legislation and guidance, as well as best practice when reporting and reviewing incidents and documentation. This supports how a person-centred review will support individuals and organisations in learning and adapting to situations that change. This includes how to build and restore relationships as well as learn and reduce the likelihood for any future situations.

Where there are situations of lower risk physical behaviours, staff will be able to respond appropriately and proportionately as and when necessary to maintain their personal safety and to prompt and guide distressed individuals.

“I’ve received really positive feedback from the colleagues I’ve had a chance to talk to about the training. Also, the interest shown in the trainers’ course has been extremely encouraging, which I think speaks volumes about people’s experiences across the two days. I look forward to the possibility of working with you again in the near future.

“I have been a Team Teach trainer for 14 years. During that time in Coventry we have developed from a small group of trainers to a large cross service group comprising a schools team, and both adult and children’s social care.

Reviews of Team Teach training are always positive, focussing on how helpful the de-escalation element is. I am proud to deliver training that is so highly respected, and has service users at its heart.”
