Knestrict, Thomas D.; Zascavage, Victoria; Winterman, Kathleen
Leadership and Research in Education, v5 n1 p33-54 2020
Ambulatory restraint is defined as any physical method of restricting an individual's freedom of movement, physical activity, or normal access to his or her body. There has been increased volume of restraints documented in public schools. This alerted the school of education at a midwestern university as to the possible need for crisis intervention training to become a required part of the licensure program. An examination of current best practices, current stances taken by professional organizations, legal perspectives on safety and liability, and an investigation of the of the trauma this might induce was undertaken, The decision was made that training would not be required for licensure or degree, but should still be made available to students as PD.
