Protective Physical Interventions

Your staff depend on the functional skills imparted to them in your training to keep themselves and their colleagues safe when they deploy physical interventions. These last-resort protective physical interventions can be deployed at all levels of risk and are appropriate for more vulnerable or more capable persons who are at risk.

Gerard O'Dea  //  Director of Training at Dynamis

Hi and thanks for visiting our Train-The -Trainer webpage today.

In over 15 years of engaging in professional development myself and seeing the experiences of other trainers in our sector, I know the importance of GOOD continuing professional development opportunities.

Resources are scarce and organisations need to know that their trainers will bring valuable insights, new methodologies and functional fixes for real problems back from their CPD.

At Dynamis we have been pioneering modern and functionally effective training methods for both verbal and physical skills in preventing and managing conflict since 2006.

We have sought out the best conflict management training content and the best learning methods  in the world and bring them together for you and your team.

How to...

Develop as a Professsional Trainer

What our customers are saying:

Tailored to situations we actually face...

“Gerard was a great teacher, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. He tailored the training to situations we might actually find ourselves in which I found incredibly useful.”

Louise C.  //  Homeless Shelter Support Worker


I left feeling confident that I could safely apply the techniques I had been shown and know when to use them. Since completing this training another member of staff and I who where both on the course have been able to safely escort a child, whom we have previously struggled and felt unsure/ unsafe with escorting when dis-regulated back in to the school building safety. We were both on the same page as were the other members of staff who witnessed the incident (and were also present for the training that day) and this greatly helped us to safely bring the child back in to school. I would like to once again give my thanks to the team who came in to teach us that day. They were both amazing!
