The RAID® Course is the UK’s leading positive approach for tackling challenging behaviour at source - over 20,000 professionals have attended it and below are the courses that are based on this approach. APT is the only provider of RAID training in the UK and Ireland and we can bring any (or all) of these courses to your own organisation for a fixed all-inclusive fee, no matter where you are.
A 3-day course.
A relentlessly positive approach to working with disturbed and challenging behaviour.
The 3-day RAID® course is the UK’s leading positive psychology approach for tackling disturbed and challenging behaviour at source: over 20,000 professionals have attended it. It is a comprehensive approach which teaches staff a philosophy and practice not only to deal with disturbed and 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 disturbed and challenging behaviour as far as safety allows, and to nurture and develop positive behaviour so that it systematically overwhelms and displaces the disturbed and challenging behaviour.
A 1-day course.
The 3-day RAID® course is the UK’s leading positive psychology approach for tackling disturbed and challenging behaviour at source: over 20,000 professionals have attended it. The purpose of the refresher day is to literally ‘refresh’ delegates who have previously attended the course: to re-invigorate them and to bring them up to speed with any developments that have occurred since they originally attended their training.
This is a major undertaking where organisations seek recognition that they are implementing RAID® principles outstandingly well.
These annual awards were established to keep people positive and ‘enthused’ about working with challenging behaviour and enabling those who often exhibit such behaviour to lead rewarding lives for themselves and those around them.
The RAID® System overlaps with positive behaviour support, although RAID has more general application. The RAID® System was first introduced in 1990, is now on its 11th iteration.
RAID® stands for Reinforce Appropriate, Implode Disruptive (behaviour). The acronym summarises a very positive approach for working with extremely challenging behaviour.
