MAPA

MAPA

The Principle that underpins the MAPA philosophy is ‘least restrictive for the least amount of time’. Our highly professional and caring staff are trained to
use Preventative and De-escalation strategies before restraint is used as a last resort.

At Westhaven all staff are trained in the use of restraint. All have attended a CPI (Crisis Prevention Institution) MAPA (Management of Actual and Potential
Aggression) Foundation Course.

Mr Jamie Peacock, Deputy Head and Head of Lower School and Mr Matthew Vincent, Head of Middle and Upper School are both qualified Mapa Instructors and deliver the Foundation Course to Westhaven Staff and to other colleagues in North Somerset.

For more information about our MAPA course training dates, prices and availability please contact Mr Peacock or Mr Vincent.
