Quick Overview

This Physical Intervention course is classroom based. It is highly recommended that 'Preventing and Managing Challenging Behaviour' training is completed before commissioning training in disengagement, breakaway or physical intervention techniques.

This will ensure that all other possible options to prevent and manage the behaviour have been exhausted prior to utilising any physical response or restrictive practice. Training techniques are selected based upon service need and the techniques themselves are fully risk assessed. All training is delivered by fully qualified trainers with many years experience working in health and social care settings.



SecuriCare offers one of the best physical intervention courses in the UK.  The course is aimed at staff working in care settings and who support individuals may exhibit behaviours that challenge, including physically challenging, unsafe or dangerous behaviours which may require physical intervention. 

SecuriCare is an ICM Quality Award centre (as recognised by the Department of Health in 'Positive and Proactive Care').


  • Physical Intervention training includes techniques that may be required to safely prompt, guide, support, hold or move service users whose behaviour necessitates staff physical intervention
  • Training in the use of physical intervention skills is provided in conjunction with training in:
  • Risk assessment
  • The role of individual care and support plans
  • Strategies for promoting alternative behaviours
  • Preventing aggressive, violent, unsafe or high risk behaviours
  • Non-physical methods of responding to aggressive or violent behaviour


Training Structure:

  • An overview of the Guidance for Restrictive Physical Interventions 
  • Relevant national guidance and legislation
  • The importance of an appropriate values base
  • Staff accountability and decision making
  • Understanding how gender and cultural diversity may affect the use of physical contact or intervention
