We can help you and your organization reduce, if not eliminate, workplace violence by learning how to “support people, not just their behaviors”™. To do this, organizations must first build a healthy relationship between and among all the stakeholders in an organization.
The Mandt System is a comprehensive, integrated approach to preventing, de-escalating, and if necessary, intervening when the behavior of an individual poses a threat of harm to themselves and/or others. The focus of The Mandt System is on building healthy relationships between all the stakeholders in human service settings in order to facilitate the development of an organizational culture that provides the emotional, psychological, and physical safety needed in order to teach new behaviors to replace the behaviors that are labeled “challenging”.
The Mandt System integrates knowledge about the neurobiological impact of childhood trauma with the principles of positive behavior support and provides a framework that empowers service providers to do their work in a way that minimizes the use of coercion in behavior change methodologies.
It is our intention that within this framework we create peace of mind, that The Mandt System® can help you find appropriate solutions and then share these with everyone. This peace of mind comes from the fact that the instructional certification provided by The Mandt System® truly puts all people first by building healthy workplace relationships in which:
- Your service users will be safer
- Your staff will be safer
- Your work will meet or exceed your industry standards for safety
These statements are not simply marketing gimmicks but represent verifiable research based outcomes in programs like yours.
