Creating Strength-Based and Trauma Sensitive Care

(Presented January 15-16, 2008, Madison)

With the encouragement and support of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), dedicated consumers, mental health providers, and a host of advocacy organizations, successful efforts to reduce seclusion and restraint usage are being replicated across the country. To help facilitate this large-scale culture change, and to assist in the implementation of proven seclusion and restraint reduction practices, the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD), through its National Technical Assistance Center for State Mental Health Planning (NTAC), sponsored six regional trainings for the National Executive Training Institute: Creating Violence Free and Coercion Free Mental Health Treatment Environments for the Reduction of Seclusion and Restraint.

This training curriculum contains prepared presentations and accompanying reference lists for more than a dozen training modules. Each module was created to address specific aspects of a seclusion and restraint reduction project.

This curriculum is also intended as a resource for use in statewide and local initiatives. Though it is a work-in-progress, this curriculum is current and comprehensive, and is appropriate for use by systems that are currently in the initial stages of addressing the reduction of seclusion and restraint within their operations. The training curriculum is designed to evolve over time as future improvements, recommendations, and best practices are incorporated.
