Beyond the Core Curriculum with Safety-Care Next Step Modules
Safety-Care has been used in many different settings, with individuals presenting with many conditions and behavior problems, with ages ranging from children to older adults. Beyond the Safety-Care core curriculum, advanced skills modules allow the course to be expanded to meet the specific needs of an organization. Advanced modules are available in the form of direct training by QBS Master Trainers or through the certification of Trainers to teach the additional material. Each module requires a half day for trainer training or 2–2 ½ hours for specialist training.
School Age Children: While the procedures in the core Safety-Care curriculum are applicable to working with individuals of any age, this module provides supplemental training specific to a younger population. It includes training in classroom and group management, and additional procedures for physical intervention with small children who are behaving dangerously.
Safety-Care for Families: Safety-Care for Families provides trainers with a customized version of the Safety-Care curriculum that can be taught to family members and others who may provide in-home support. It includes Safety-Care prevention and minimization strategies, and the development of a Family Safety Plan..
Advanced Skills Module: For more severe challenges, we offer the Advanced Skills Module. This module provides an expanded toolbox of skills and strategies for those already certified in the Safety-Care® Core Curriculum. It includes physical safety skills, team intervention, strategies for prevention and management of peer aggression, vehicle incidents, object management, transitions, and floor holds.
