Handle with Care is a program designed to teach staff how to deal with a behaviorally challenged population in a way that preserves the student's dignity, is safe and enables continued positive learning and behavioral development by preserving and enhancing the theraputic relationship. Participants of the program will go through both the verbal model for de-escalation and then the physical model for maintaining a safe environment when student's escalate to violence. The Handle with Care program is committed to the emotional and physical safety of behaviorally challenged individuals whose behavior is harmful to themselves or others and the staff and organizations that support them.
Handle With Care requires Recertification each year in order to stay current with coverage.
Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes such as warm-ups on the day of training. We will be physically active and spending a large amount of time on the floor during this training.
