'When I'm stressed and melting down, how do I want to be treated?'
Studio 3's Training Trainers course goes beyond simply teaching trainers to deliver physical interventions and crisis management training. We seek to instill a philosophical approach to training in all potential trainers, demonstrating that restrictive practices are not the key to managing behaviours of concern. Rather, our trainers provide de-escalation training that focuses on stress reduction and immediate crisis management, starting with reflective practice and low arousal approaches.
In order for our programme to be sustainable, it is important for us to educate potential trainers to the highest standard in all aspects of Studio 3's philosophy, theory, and practice.
As an organisation we limit the number of spaces each year as we believe it is important to train high quality In-House trainers. Our programme is much longer than our competitors (being a minimum of 15 working days) as we expect trainers to be able to communicate knowledge both in classrooms and in practical settings.
Attendees will book 3 x 5 day commitments as detailed here.
