Management of Actual and Potential Aggression
What is MAPA®?
With a focus on prevention, the MAPA® programme provides a framework of management and intervention techniques to help staff cope with escalating behaviour in a professional and safe manner.
is a holistic behaviour management system based on the philosophy of providing the best Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security for staff and students.
focuses on preventing disruptive behaviour by communicating with individuals respectfully and with concern for their well-being.
incorporates follow-up debriefing strategies so that communication is restored, problem behaviour can be prevented, and patterns of problem behaviour can be altered
involves training in positive handling strategies through a whole setting holistic approach to managing difficult, disturbing, & sometimes dangerous behaviour.
teaches physical interventions only as a last resort - when an individual presents an imminent danger to self or others - and all physical interventions taught are designed to be non-harmful, non-invasive, and to maintain the individual’s dignity
Sir Keith Park School has several MAPA trainers on our staff. This on site expertise allows us to introduce a holistic behaviour support programme to our entire staff as part of in service training.
All staff at Sir Keith Park School undertake the 12 hour basic training programme and are supported by ongoing refreshers, practice sessions and further specific training as required.
Individual programmes are developed by our transdisciplinary behaviour management team.
