The final module in the UMAB certificate program deals with containment and physical restraints. There is emphasis placed on the level of intervention matching or paralleling the level of aggression displayed. The restraint portion of training is very specific to body mechanics and has a high level of effectiveness. This type of training requires a hands-on, experiential learning environment. When you complete the 3-day program and successfully demonstrate the UMAB technique and philosophy, you will receive certification.

This training is suitable for everyone who would like to learn how to safely manage aggressive behaviour in children and youth or adults.
