Promising Practices for Reducing the Use of Emergency Procedures

This webinar provides “Promising Practices” for reducing the use of emergency procedures (i.e., restraints and seclusion). The “Promising Practices” are based on research conducted by the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) National Coordinating Center to Reduce the Use of Restraints and Seclusion. The Coordinating Center received a $9 million multi-year and multi-site grant to reduce the use of restraints and seclusion in residential programs and psychiatric hospitals for children and youth. The grant was funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Services Administration (SAMHSA). The “Promising Practices” presented are gleaned from an issue brief that annotates policies and practices that have successfully reduced the use of these emergency procedures.
