What does RAID stand for in mental health?

What does RAID stand for in mental health?

The RAID® acronym is a registered trademark of APT, the Association for Psychological Therapies, and stands for “Reinforce Appropriate (behaviour), Implode Disruptive (behaviour): It's a simple acronym which summarises a three day course from APT which features a relentlessly positive approach to working with challenging behaviour. The approach might best be summed up as follows:

You ignore difficult and disruptive behaviour as far as safety and ethics allow and concentrate instead on helping the person develop appropriate and adaptive behaviour which gradually overwhelms and displaces the difficult and disruptive.
