Special Interest Study Group 9 (sold out)
Preventing the Use of Restraint and Seclusion

There have been many changes in treatment options regarding the use of seclusion and restraint in recent years. While physical, mechanical, and chemical restraint and locked-door seclusion are often employed in child and adolescent treatment settings to manage aggressive behavior, there is increasing consensus regarding the adverse consequences of these methods. This SIG brings increased awareness of changes in philosophy and practice regarding the use of restraint and seclusion, and discusses strategies and challenges in preventing the use of restraint and seclusion. Participants are introduced to a method for creating a restraint prevention initiative and provided opportunity to collaborate with colleagues.
