CWLA Best Practice Guidelines for Behavior Support and Intervention Training

CWLA Best Practice Guidelines for Behavior Support and Intervention Training The use of restraint and seclusion creates serious risks for children, including traumatization, emotional harm, serious injury, and even death. CWLA's Best Practice Guidelines for Behavior Support and Intervention Training will help facilities select qualified training vendors that will aid in efforts to reduce the use of restraint and seclusion. Doing so prevents further harm from being inflicted on children who have been maltreated, creates an environment that is free from violence, and allows children and caregivers to form trusting relationships.

Best Practices in Behavior Support and Intervention Assessment

Best Practices in Behavior Support and Intervention Assessment The use of emergency physical intervention is increasingly controversial. It puts children at risk of serious bodily harm and is humiliating and dehumanizing. Children who have been put in restraint or seclusion have nightmares, avoidance responses, and serious emotional trauma. This assessment instrument will help agencies improve their behavior support and intervention policies, practices, and procedures. Agencies that perform the self-assessment will be able to pinpoint how they can ensure the safety of their clients and workers without causing children more harm than they have already experienced.
