In order to promote positive behaviour a care setting or organisation should follow legislation made by government such as the Human Rights Act 1998, codes of practise and relevant policies set out by the trust or service. It is important to read and understand theses legislations and policies and then apply them to working practise. We receive mandatory training that reinforces the trusts policies and keeps us informed of any changes to be aware of. Best practise tells us that if we keep good notes and share information with colleagues correctly then we will be able to help and support patients correctly and encourage positive behaviour.
Restrictive interventions are ways and methods that prevent an individual from carrying out a certain task.
Restrictive interventions must only be used if the individual is at risk of injuring themselves or others, or if coursing damage to property or illegal behavior.
If an incident occurred where restrictive intervention was needed then the clinic manager or senior nurse must be informed immediately. An incident form will be filled in and sent to human resources and the incident team within the trust.
Where possible the least restrictive interventions should be used as they can sometimes escalate the problem rather than defuse it. Using the least possible restrictive intervention will prevent further harm to any individual involved and will avoid the intervention being deemed as abuse.
In order to safeguard both the staff member and individual during a restrictive physical interventions, they must only be carried out by a trained member of staff. It must be reasoned that all other measures have been attempted and failed before carrying out restrictive intervention. If at anytime during the intervention it becomes apparent that the person involved or staff member is at an increased risk then it must stop immediately. If a person becomes...
Summarise the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people’s positivebehaviour.
All adults who work within the secure care environment have a responsibility to themselves and Clayfields. We must exhibit a high standard of behaviour, both in 1:1 dealings with the young person/group, care affiliated professionals and the public, as our example of behaviour has a significant influence on the children’s behaviour. Good, strong teamwork between RCW's encourages good behaviour from the young people. Clayfields behaviour policy that staff should be aware of and adhere to; all new staff follow an induction programme to guarantee a dependable approach to behaviour management within . School group organization and teaching methods have a major influence on children’s behaviour as in classroom environments children are aware of the degree to which they and their efforts are valued. A relationship between a teacher/teaching assistant and the children, the positive strategies that are used, together with classroom displays that the children have done by themselves all have a bearing on a child’s behaviour. The whole ethos at Clayfielsd House is built around our emphasis on rewards...

Understand how legislation, frameworks, codes of practice and policies relate to positivebehaviour support.
1.1 Explain how legislation, frameworks, codes of practice and policies related to positivebehaviour support are applied to own working practice.
All aspects of my job role are regulated by policies and current legislation. The mandatory training that we attend has been designed to cover all aspects of legislation such as the Children's Act, which provides a Code of Practice to enable us provide the best possible care and support for children and young people. We also have inspections from OFSTED who ensure we are meeting, not only care standards, but also those relating to behaviour and how we encourage positivebehaviour is evaluated. As a staff member I have the responsibility of recording all incidents of behaviour support and these include both positive and challenging behaviour.
There are several policies and procedures in my work place relating to positivebehaviour:
Rewards and sanctions
The code of conduct forms part of a behaviour policy. It will state what is expected from staff as well as young people. It can provide guidence to...

and policies relate to positivebehaviour support
1.1 explain how legislation, frameworks, codes of practice and policies relating to positivebehaviour are applied to own working practice
Human Rights Act 1998 – individuals’ rights should not be contravened and independence, choice and inclusion are paramount. It is also acknowledged that some individuals require constant supervision due to their conditions/illnesses.
The law states that everyone has the right to live without interference from others and should not be unlawfully restrained.
Restrictive physical interventions should only be used as a last resort, and should be a part of a behaviour management strategy. This should only be used when other less intrusive strategies have been unsuccessful, and the risks of not using an emergency intervention are outweighed by the need to intervene.
There must be clear justification for using physical restraint, and this must be recorded, in line with policies and procedures.
The duty of care must be exercised at all times
1.2 define what is meant by restrictive interventions
Restrictive intervention is the act of any intervention which restricts an individual’s right and freedom of movement.
This can happen in many...
...HSC3045 TASK 2 2.1
Proactive strategies are the strategies that are already in place to deal with behavioural problems. Proactive behaviour management is about sharing what strategies are with the children to make sure they know what's expected of them. Reasons children behave as expected could be that they simply ‘know’ what is expected of them or they ‘know’ the consequences for not behaving appropriately. Praise is the best way of promoting a proactive behaviour management plan. We need to give lots of praise for positivebehaviour and logical consequences for inappropriate behaviour. The best way to let children know what you expect of them is to remind them every day, tell them the rules of the setting, discuss choices with them and don’t forget to praise them when they are behaving appropriately.
Proactive strategies include:
Rule making and boundary setting
Know how to undertake observations that identify events and triggers
Know policies and procedures
Celebrate and praise all children's accomplishments
Reactive strategies are how you deal with an incidence of inappropriate behaviour at the time it occurs. We respond to the child’s choice and implement a consequence for inappropriate behaviour. No matter...
...HSC3045 TASK 1 1.1
Restrictive Intervention: the act of any intervention which restricts a person’s right and freedom of movement. Restrictive intervention can be in forms such as;
• Social intervention – where harmful or destructive behaviour can be contained and moderated with the use of language including facial expressions and words, this intervention may be and should be used as a primary action.
• Mechanical intervention – the use of devices to prevent or contain a person’s movement such as highchairs, stair gates, barrier erection, locked doors.
• Physical intervention – using actual bodily contact which should only be used with clear justification and in guidance of the settings policies and procedures and staff training. Physical intervention may only be used upon ensuring safeguards are in place for the member of staff and also the person involved and when social and mechanical intervention is not sufficient. Moderate risk to prevent danger to others should be expected but physical intervention may not be used if there is a substantial risk of injury or it conflicts with any individual care plans in place.
• Planned Intervention - using evidence from observations, assessments, care plans and risk assessments. A planned intervention may be ensuring that a member of staff sits with a child at group times to support,...
