Successful PMVA Training Course for Healthcare Staff

Congratulations to our September cohort who have all successfully passed their 2-day PMVA (Preventative Management of Violence & Aggression) training course.

Qualified nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers all attended the intensive course which was delivered by Paul, a highly qualified trainer with extensive knowledge in mental health and challenging behaviour.

The high-quality 2-day course is designed to teach healthcare workers how to safely manage themselves and others in potentially harmful situations. A range of skills are taught, including de-escalation, positive behaviour support, blocking punches and kicks, breakaway techniques and legal issues.

Training of this kind is especially useful (and sometimes a pre-requisite) in the NHS and private Mental Health settings.
