• Safer, everyday practical skills for managing conflict and behaviours of concern

    Conflict Resolution and Personal Safety Training for Nurses and Hospital Staff

    Hospitals can be challenging environments to work in and Maybo provides staff in different roles and services with the knowledge and skills to reduce and de-escalate conflict and safely manage behaviours of concern.

    Proven experience and expertise

    Staff working in hospitals strive to provide the best care for patients who can have diverse and often complex physical, psychological and emotional needs. As a result of these some patients can present 'challenging', unpredictable and risky behaviours. Added to this, staff can experience conflict with relatives and other visitors.

    Maybo’s award-winning training provides staff with positive approaches to behaviours of concern, including safer working practices and effective communication and de-escalation skills.

    Where necessary we can teach simple positioning skills to reduce vulnerability to injury when working in close proximity to patients, plus low arousal disengagement, guiding and redirection skills. In higher risk areas this can extend to clinical holding skills.

    Maybo also trains hospital security and response teams in the above areas and in any additional physical intervention skills required, such as holding and escorting skills.

    We have attained the highest levels of recognition in this area of training, including approval from the Restraint Reduction Network and BILD ACT Certification for our programmes.

    We are the preferred training partner for many respected healthcare providers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

    • Understanding Trauma and Trauma‑Informed Approaches

      Trauma can affect anyone. When a person lives with trauma their brain works differently and their behaviour changes, yet we as a society often respond in unhelpful ways.

      This comprehensive eLearning course seeks to bridge the gap between identifying and understanding trauma, and, responding with intelligence and compassion in a way that opens the door for recovery and a better way forward.

      Designed for people providing care and support to someone affected by trauma, four engaging and informative eLearning modules explore the fundamental concepts of trauma and how it affects the minds, emotions, lives and behaviours of people who experience it and those close to them.

      This comprehensive course provides a great starting point for those embarking on training and qualifications in trauma-informed approaches. It also provides a pragmatic, engaging and practical way for organisations to provide trauma-awareness training to their whole workforce.

      • Individual factors that can create resilience to trauma and the possible signs and symptoms of trauma.

    • May I say a big thank you for the Maybo violence and aggression course for the ITU nurses. I attended the course today and it was excellent. I think the staff would all agree that the knowledge and skills taught will be hugely beneficial, but in addition, it was a great team-building exercise too. I feel it is imperative that all our ITU nurses attend this course.
