MAPA® Emergency Holding Skills

The Emergency Holding SkillsSM programme prepares staff to teach a range of MAPA® Emergency Holding ProceduresSM and Emergency InterventionsSM appropriate for workplace settings where professional staff are required to implement physical interventions in the management of acute behavioural disturbance and extreme risk behaviours.
Programme Objectives
On completion of the training staff will be able to:
  1. Build levels of competence and confidence in the MAPA® classroom models so that the physiological principles can be applied to problem solve situational behaviours from the workplace.
  2. Understand how to apply the principles of MAPA® Emergency Holding ProceduresSM and Emergency InterventionsSM to specific circumstances related to extreme risk or acute behavioural disturbance.
  3. Identify the risks involved with the management of extreme risk and acute behavioural disturbance, and how to minimise those risks during situational application in the workplace
