This is a wonderful professional development opportunity anyone interested in engaging in promoting safety with clients and in the workplace. All of AllHealth Networks 24-hour Acute Care Campus staff are trained annually in The Mandt System, 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 shortest basic Mandt training is held via Zoom, with the remaining four are usually held in person. During the pandemic, the class sizes are kept small and social-distanced as much as possible with all staff wearing masks, yet there are times when social-distancing cannot be maintained because staff need to practice physical holds with each other and with the instructor. During the pandemic, classes may also move entirely online via Zoom at short notice.

You should be able to constantly finding new and engaging ways to relay the same concepts and not be afraid to adopt new learning strategies or materials so that theyre accessible and engaging.
