PCMA believes that people have the best behavior and quality of life when those around them understand their behavior and interact with them in non-coercive ways.
People have fewer problem behaviors and ultimately need fewer physical crisis management interventions when staff and caregivers are skillful in managing behavior and interacting non-coercively.
PCMA’s BehaviorTools™ curriculum supports PCMA’s philosophy, mission and values by setting the highest training and certification standards in the field and employing the most sound, scientifically based and time proven strategies to help people achieve the best possible quality of life.
"Staff injuries are WAY down since we adopted PCM. Our staff turnover is WAY down as well. I believe the practical testing strategies used in the PCM classes work well."|
"With the assistance of PCM (non-physical and prevention strategies specifically), Our facility has been able to reduce the need for physical intervention by more than 85% over the past 3 months."|
