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.
