My wife recently taught her first Mandt System De-escalation Training workshop at the school where she works and asked me to attend to assist with teaching the physical skills. It was good to get to know some of her coworkers a little better and hear how they are using The Mandt System in their school. By focusing on the classroom conflict resolution skills and positive behavior support strategies in the Relational Chapters of the program, they have been able to maintain a restraint free environment.
Since then, I have been thinking about all the different organizations with Mandt System instructors that I have had the honor of training over the years and am thankful for the opportunity to work for a company that allows me to teach tools to help staff improve their own lives as well as those of the people they serve by providing them with trauma informed training that focuses on supporting people in positive ways and creating safe environments and relationships for everyone within an organization.
