In the 10 years since physical interventions moved onto the national agenda, much progress has been made.
This book, based on contributions from leading academics and practitioners in the UK and USA, is the first major overhaul of key developments and current best practice in the field.
It includes an overview of current policies and practices, an examination of physical interventions and abusive practice, and a discussion of objectives for the immediate future.
An important reference for commissioners, service providers and physical interventions trainers, as well as anyone concerned with improving our responses to challenging behaviour.
"This book is a signature to a decade of change and revolution. It is a salute to a community which has moved mountains and faced up to difficult and traumatic issues and found imaginative and exciting solutions."
