'Why wait for the storm to pass, lets learn to dance in the rain"


SBMVA – TRAINING was established in 2013 to provide consultancy work and expert training, advice, support, guidance, within most areas of mandatory training requirements within health and social care establishments. One of the many SBMVA specialist fields is within force reduction and prevention of violence and aggression from patients who challenge our services using positive behaviour support (PBS) approaches utilising primary secondary and tertiary interventions, training staff around functional analysis, models of reporting and recording and conflict resolution.

SBMVA aims to offer up to date national best practice standards in support of excellent client centred values and approaches whilst providing establishments with the confidence to manage conflict and challenging behaviour.
