Physical Intervention Training

Physical Intervention Skills female-conflict

Our physical intervention training programme is designed to give learners a physical skillset to enable them to maintain their personal safety in a range of high-level conflict situations. The course is only delivered as an add on supplement to our conflict management programme.


Who is this for?

This course is designed for staff working in an environment where the risk assessment dictates that there is a probability that the level of conflict may involve physical contact and may require transporting or holding violent persons.

Course Content:

  • Legal  considerations in physical intervention.
  • Using effective body language to manage personal space.
  • A suite of skills to effectively disengage from a range of common physical attacks.
  • A selection of non-restrictive escort and guiding techniques for managing subjects displaying challenging behaviour.
  • A selection of restrictive holding and escorting techniques for managing non-compliant and violent subjects.
  • The risks associated with physical intervention.
  • Best practice in recording and reporting physical intervention.
  • The after effects of using physical intervention skills.

Course Delivery and Duration

The course is delivered over a half day and scenario based exercises which encourage analytical thought, problem solving skills and build confidence in managing high level conflict situations. The physical element is thought in a controlled classroom environment using scenarios and group practice.
