Safety Care is a competency based behavioral safety training program designed to facilitate safe and therapeutic interactions between students and teachers working in educational settings. Safety Care provides strategies for preventing and safely managing behavioral challenges with respect and compassion. The program is based upon an applied behavior analytic paradigm in every component, with every technique. Safety Care first focuses on training reinforcement-based strategies, teaching participants to proactively and positively engage clients in behaviors that are incompatible with anger and aggression.


At the end of this training participants will be able to demonstrate competencies for:

  • Use of differential reinforcement
  • Using the Elbow check and safety stance
  • De-escalation
  • Basic physical safety skills
  • Shoulder check and supportive guide
  • Wrist, grab, choke, hair pull, and bite releases
  • Emergency physical interventions
