The RAID Course

The RAID® Course

A 3-day course.

A relentlessly positive approach to working with extreme behaviour.

The 3-day RAID® course is the UK’s leading positive psychology approach for tackling challenging behaviour at source: over 15,000 professionals have attended it. It is a comprehensive approach which teaches staff a philosophy and practice not only to deal with challenging behaviour when it occurs, but also to prevent it by tackling it at source. Staff feel pleased to share a unified system and to know what they are doing and why they are doing it, while clients delight in a relentlessly positive and empowering approach. The essence of the RAID® approach is to play down challenging behaviour as far as safety allows, and to nurture and develop positive behaviour so that it systematically overwhelms and displaces the challenging behaviour.
