Implementing restrictive practices can be an emotionally and physically difficult task that many members of the community go through.
Professor Richard Bruggemann will hold a ‘Restrictive Practice Training’ workshop at the Tatiara Civic Centre on Monday May 21.
The training aims to give participants the correct information on the rights of Australian citizens and residents including people with disabilities.
The workshop aims to describe different types of restrictive practices and demonstrate how they can breach human rights.
The event will describe how and when it is necessary to use restrictive practices legally and highlight the dangers of some existing practices.
The workshop will also demonstrate how new approaches such as Positive Behaviour Support can reduce the need to use restrict practices.
The workshop will also examine how restrictive practices are monitored and managed by the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Commission, as well as the requirement organisation have to record and report their use of restrictive practice.
The event will be held at the Tatiara Civic Centre Monday May 21 from 12.30pm to 2pm.
