MAPA® Programme Details Advanced Level

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

Does your organisation support individuals whose behaviour may be more unpredictable and present a higher risk?

The MAPA® Advanced programme builds on the skills learned at Foundation level and enables staff to identify higher risks and intervene appropriately, without putting themselves or the patient/service user at unnecessary risk.

Please note: You MUST have completed the MAPA® Foundation programme before taking this advanced course.

On completion of this programme, you will be able to:

  1. Understand the critical role of workplace training as an ongoing process to ensure physical interventions are applied as safely as possible during training transfer into your workplace.
  2. Understand the principles, techniques and sources of MAPA® classroom models.
  3. Build confidence and competence in the MAPA® classroom models so that the physiological principles can be applied to problem-solve situational behaviours in the workplace.
  4. Understand how to apply the principles of MAPA® physical disengagement and holding skills to specific circumstances or high-risk situations.
  5. Identify the risks involved with advanced physical skills and how to minimise those risks during situational application in the workplace.
  6. Develop a greater understanding of the post-crisis COPING Model℠ for staff and service users following a crisis event.
