Training of Trainers -
Managing Aggressive Behavior (MAB)

A crisis management program that focuses on prevention while teaching the physical and non physical intervention skills you need to keep staff and clients safe.

Course Description

This intensive, hands-on course will teach you how to train the MAB curriculum and is appropriate for professionals who want to be qualified to train staff and volunteers to prevent and manage crisis. The MAB program emphasizes prevention and non-physical intervention strategies, and teaches non-pain producing physical intervention techniques to protect youth and staff alike. MAB can help you establish agency-wide procedures that will reduce the number of restraints and offers an after-crisis component that helps staff learn from each event.
