PETMA© (Professional Ethical Therapeutic Management of Aggression) is the first, and only, Irish-based model of behaviour management training that is accredited with the Restraint Reduction Network, BILD Certified and is Guaranteed Irish. The model was developed by Martha McGinn Company Director National Institute of Intellectual Disability Studies following extensive research into the needs of the those supporting children and young people in schools and those providing day, residential and respite services within the nursing home and disability sector in Ireland.
The model is designed to comply with Irish legislation and HIQA Theme 3 Safe Services and associated regulation 7 Positive Behaviour Support, regulation 8 Protection and regulation 26 Risk Management. Teaching within the PETMA© framework focuses on much more than managing behaviour and includes areas of understanding, empathy and recognition of stress which are all areas that are essential to ethical behaviour management.
PETMA© can provide strong reassurances that individuals supported within the PETMA© framework will be confidently, competently and most importantly, respectfully supported.
