What Our Customers Say

Staff feel better prepared to manage deceleration and de-escalation and not to rely on holding skills. Staff also report that, in many years of working, they are really impressed how much they learned from a 5-day programme and realised they should question their own practice more.

CPI training has improved understanding, confidence and competence of the team. The service users are also more understanding and receptive to earlier de-escalation strategies.

Pupils and staff feel safer and are more relaxed as they know that they are not going to be held or are very unlikely to have to use physical intervention to manage a situation.

It has made staff more aware of the skills they have at their disposal prior to using restraint. By practising these in refresher training it brings out the best in the staff and enhances their confidence.
