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.
