Studio 3’s Systemic Approach
Studio 3 was founded as an organisation to support people in crisis over 20 years ago, our approach has developed into a focus on ‘culture change’ and the development of wellbeing. Our approaches challenge people and cultures.
Here are seven key components of our approaches to supporting people (more information here).
1) We provide a ‘systems’ approach to all of our work.
2) We support organisations to develop a clear and coherent approach to reducing restrictive practices.
3) We aim to develop a reflective approach to learning.
4) Our staff focus on implementation of positive practices on the ground not just in the classroom.
5) We passionately support the human rights of individuals. All. Of our work is driven by these values.
6) We are driven by evidence based approaches and as such our training and other models of supports adapt to the latest research.
7) Studio 3 training in physical interventions focusses on teaching as few physical interventions as possible.
Autism and Atlass
We provide generic training in developing an understanding of autism spectrum disorders and challenging behaviour.
Specifically the Atlass programme for Autism was developed by staff at Studio 3, to provide a wellbeing based approach to supporting people who may have behaviours of concern. The approach encourages people to be positive and focus on building resilience, answering the key question ‘how can I reduce stress in this person and their environment?’
Dr Andrew McDonnell developed the low arousal technique in 1994. This approach is now a world wide care standard suitable for Children and Adults.
