Our PMVA Courses

PMVA is an acronym for the Prevention & Management of Violence & Aggression This training is for staff who work or otherwise intend to work in an environment where restrictive interventions may need to be applied as a therapeutic means to control, communicate and care for people with a mental health concern or challenging behaviour. It is required to manage a violent or aggressive setting. The management of these incidents is achieved both theoretically and physically.

MHC-TRAINING aims to equip its candidates with all skills required, including theoretical means of de-escalating incidents that may be prevalent. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based practice, encouraging frameworks such as Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and SAFEWARDS. This training is essential for the safety of the clients and staff who care for them. All MHC-TRAINING training tutors are GSA Trained.


At MHC-TRAINING, we believe physical restraint should only be utilised as a last resort, in dangerous circumstances where there is NO OTHER WAY. If it is used, it should be Proportionate, Reasonable and Necessary, as well as Justified. It should be less intrusive and not have any negative psychological or physical concerns for the client. Physical restraint should focus also on trauma-informed care, bearing in mind the negative impact it may render on the clients.

MHC-TRAINING aims to equip its candidates with the acceptable skills to therapeutically manage difficult circumstances. MHC-TRAINING is based in Coventry and our courses can be booked here online.
