The Supervision of Safe & Positive Approaches

The Supervision of Safe & Positive Approaches is an evidence‐based supervisory training program designed for lead staff, first‐line supervisors and middle managers who are responsible for direct care/direct support staff and their implementation of the performance responsibilities trained in the Safe & Positive Approaches® program. Its purpose is to enable supervisors to: (a) understand their roles and responsibilities and legal implications; (b) heighten their knowledge and skill level of Safe & Positive Approaches® concepts and techniques; (c) provide supportive, behavioral supervision; and (d) promote staff’s use, mastery and retention of Safe & Positive Approaches® concepts and skills that reduce and eliminate the use of restraints.

  3. Participants will be able to develop their knowledge and skills in the concepts, guidelines and techniques trained in the Safe & Positive Approaches® program.
  4. Participants will be able to demonstrate technical accuracy in their evaluation of staff’s performance of Safe & Positive Approaches® skills and techniques.
  5. Participants will be able to implement supportive supervisory strategies for providing performance monitoring and a 7-step process for delivering feedback to their staff.
