PMVA Training Healthcare


— Real violence is scary.   It is always sudden, rarely planned and always includes elements of chaos, stress and pressure which are uncomfortable for 98% of human beings.  In order for us to adequately prepare our learners for these moments, we have to cosy-up to these elements which are present in a real confrontation and, in as safe an environment as possible, literally bring PMVA learners into contact with them.

In our PMVA training healthcare staff need to experience conflict which approximates most closely the chaos, stress and pressure which are features of interpersonal confrontation.   On the other hand, it is precisely those features of violence which damage people psychologically, which make them hesitant to attend our training programmes and which block learning due to the presence of fear.

So, we need to develop and integrate methods of PMVA Training Healthcare which progressively, step-by-step introduce these features into accessible snapshots of the ‘whole picture’ of violence.  Using the principle of inoculation, we must introduce sub-threshold stressors into the training in just-manageable amounts so that excellent PMVA training helps the person to build their resistance in a natural way.

Steadily layered training, with appropriately-staged points of progression, can have excellent results, as we have seen ourselves with trauma victims, with those who have limiting self-beliefs and with those who have been conditioned to believe that they can not (or should not) be competent in managing violence.

The secret is in excellent PMVA training design and the programme of layers which are planned into a properly-constructed PMVA training system.
