The Principle that underpins the Pivotal 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 theory of Pivotal MAPA and we have a number of staff trained in the use of restraint. All have attended a CPI (Crisis Prevention Institution) Pivotal MAPA (Management of Actual and Potential Aggression) Foundation Course.
Mr Jamie Peacock and Mr John Bevan are both qualified Pivotal MAPA Instructors and deliver the course to Westhaven Staff.
