Proven experience and expertise
Maybo’s 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 enables staff to:
- Better understand a child's physiological and emotional needs
- Improve their environment and relationships
- Engage them in ways that reduce behaviours of concern
- Reduce the need for restrictive practices
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 appropriate for use as a last resort with vulnerable children and young people.
We are the preferred training partner for many respected care providers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Our training programmes are suitable for those supporting young people within children's services such as residential care, short break services, youth centres or educational settings and for children with additional needs. It can also be tailored for families and carers.
Maybo was one of the first organisations to evidence compliance with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards and we can offer training Certified by BILD ACT to Children's Services that meet requirements. Our Trainer Training is also Accredited by City & Guilds.
