MAPA® Programme Details Foundation Level

Back To MAPA® (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression)

Does your organisation work with potentially vulnerable people, or those who display behaviours that challenge?

With the MAPA® Foundation course, teaches your staff to respond safely, effectively and confidently to challenging or aggressive behaviours that may be presented by those they care for.

  1. Identify escalating behaviours and introduce de-escalation.
  2. Reduce the need for restraint and reduce the risk of physical injury.
  3. Champion a culture of Care, Welfare, Safety and Security

Fully flexible, the programme can be tailored to your needs. For example, if your organisation does not need physical holds, but staff need disengagement skills, then the programme can be delivered in just one day.

If your organisation works with individuals whose behaviour may be more unpredictable and present a higher risk, you should also check out the MAPA® Advanced programme.
