Relationships First: Committing to the Reduction and Elimination of Restraints
Room: Olmsted 1-3
Our increased understanding of trauma and brain science is leading the field to rethink restraint and seclusion, equipping staff instead with effective relational strategies. This organizational transformation often begins with leadership initiating a shift in knowledge, beliefs, and culture. Spend the afternoon with several ACRC member organizations who have made this commitment and will candidly share their journey toward excellence. ACRC will provide a platform for continuing the conversation beyond this afternoon as we invite these preconference attendees to monthly roundtable conversations focused on our individual and collective successes and challenges.
