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
- 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 that help carers to safely manage and de-escalate challenging situations that arise. Our physical skills are proven to be gentle and low arousal, yet safe and robust when required as a last resort.
Our work within adult and children’s services is Bild ACT Certified and in line with guidance from the RRN, NHS Protect, DHSC, CQC, NICE, Skills for Health and RCN.
We are the preferred training partner for many of the largest care providers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
