Personal Safety, Conflict Management and Physical Restraint Training and Advice from Sector Experts at Dynamis and Director of Training Gerard O'Dea.
We provide Conflict Resolution, Personal Safety and Physical Restraint training and advice to organisations. We help your healthcare, social care or education team to communicate effectively with your clients and create safety in your services.
Our PMVA training helps you to create an environment which is not compatible with violence and therefore we are your Violence Reduction Initiative and Restraint Reduction programme partner. You reduce complaints, liability and injuries while improving compliance.
Our Verbal Defense and Influence approach combines Verbalisation Skills with Physical Alternatives, which means your staff practice treating people with dignity and showing them respect, even during the most difficult of interactions and especially if restrictive interventions are required.
Your staff learn to de-escalate anger and resistance while keeping themselves and others safe by using only last-resort physical restraint or by using functional breakaway and self-defence skills when words alone fail to resolve conflict.
