Positive approaches to behaviour
Maybo is passionate about the delivery of person-centred, human rights-based models of care that reduce the need for restrictive practices and improve service user’s quality of life.
Our learning methods are consistent with the principles of positive behaviour support, focusing on primary and secondary strategies for preventing and defusing behaviours of concern. This helps staff to:
- Better understand a person’s physiological and emotional needs
- Improve their environment
- Recognise and reduce restrictive practices
- Engage them in ways that reduce behaviours of concern
- Promote respect and choices for the individual
Alongside proactive strategies to reduce behaviours of concern, we teach reactive strategies to safely de-escalate emotive situations. In some settings physical skills are occasionally needed to create safety and we can provide simple low arousal methods for use in last resort.
We have attained the highest levels of recognition including approval from the Restraint Reduction Network and BILD ACT Certification for our programmes.
We are the preferred training partner for many respected care providers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
