Brief Description

The Handle With Care Behavior Management System® is designed to train professionals on safely managing behaviorally challenged children and adults, including those with disruptive, aggressive and self-destructive behaviors. The program teaches staff to develop and use their management and relationship skills to reduce tension, and create and maintain a calm and safe environment for all. This verbal de-escalation and physical intervention program includes a patented restraint technique that is designed to be effective, safe and require fewer staff to safely manage a crisis than other restraint training programs. Handle With Care Behavior Management System® complies with all Federal and State laws and is accredited by all major professional regulatory bodies.
