WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
Hands-on interventions can be harmful and cause trauma for people receiving services. Physical interventions should not be used to respond to a person’s behaviors. Staff need better skills to be able to work with people receiving services.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT HELP?
This initiative is the first step in a long-term plan for changes in training, regulations, and service delivery. State and voluntary providers, staff and community members will share their feedback to inform this project.
