Teaching the most effective verbal & physical restraint strategies for over 30 years

Reduction in number of restraints & injuries

Our trainings are a result of over 25 years of continuous research, development and our proprietary
physical holding method, the Primary Restraint Technique(PRT)®, is the only physical technique of any
kind that has ever been granted patent protection.

"I recommend HWC because students are treated with the utmost respect, even in situations when restraint is necessary. Additionally, staff knows there is a way to handle such situations and do not feel a sense of helplessness."
Vice Principal, Chalone Peaks MS (CA)
"De-escalation strategies have always been something our staff are trained in, but tagging that with HWC makes a lot of sense. I also am no longer afraid of children's behavior because of this training. I have the confidence that I will know how to handle a situation when before the training, it was a little unclear."
Special Educator, Elementary & Middle School (VT)
"We are a residential counseling center for struggling teens. We switched to Handle with Care for our crisis intervention and physical restraint needs over 10 years ago. Since switching, we have decreased our physical restraints to about 5 per year. Our staff feel more confident and prepared to handle crisis situations and are equipped to recognize and de-escalate situations before physical restraint becomes necessary."
Director, Residential Center for Struggling Teens
