Safety-Care® in Education

For nearly 20 years, QBS has taught positive behavioral supports for the classroom to education professionals who support students with behavioral challenges in large and small school districts and private schools across the U.S. and Canada.

Positive Behavioral Supports for the Classroom

As our recent blog post featured in Psychology Today discusses, reducing injuries to students and staff is a top priority across all K-12 learning environments. Beyond stopping and preventing crisis events, Safety-Care is deeply rooted in de-escalation and replacement behavior techniques, so all education professionals are equipped with the resources and skills needed to minimize and reverse the progression of challenging behavior.

Behavior Management in the Classroom

Safety-Care provides a comprehensive, supportive approach to incident prevention, de-escalation, and management. Educators learn practical strategies for helping students that use evidence-based practices consistent with PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) and ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis).

Incident Prevention Training

Safety-Care teaches techniques for incident prevention, including teaching staff how to structure a supportive and safe environment, using appropriate and everyday safety habits, and effectively providing behavioral reinforcement.

Incident Minimization Training

To help minimize incidents, staff are trained to use de-escalation procedures. These include three strategies for decreasing agitation and minimizing the intensity of potential crisis situations: our Help, Prompt, and Wait strategies. Contact us to learn more about these proven strategies for preventing and minimizing crisis behavior.

Physical Safety Training

Physical safety training is focused on staff’s situational awareness and physical protection within their work environments. It includes safety techniques aimed at preventing common staff injuries and includes relevant role-plays.

Physical Management Training

Physical management strategies are more restrictive in application, and these strategies are taught in a least-to-most restrictive sequence. The implementation of these strategies emphasizes safe and natural positioning, minimal intrusiveness, preventing any restriction on breathing, continuous monitoring for the safety of everyone involved, and the briefest possible use.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I am so excited to share that we just completed our first Safety-Care Behavioral training class in our district. I knew that QBS’s program was high-quality when I was in the process of earning my certification to become a district trainer, but now after conducting this first training, I feel confident to say that even more!
