Seeing a visual transgression of an abuse gives the term restraint a real meaning. To see a person being restrained shows the hurt that the patient feels when being restrained. I am now more confidant that when i come to a situation which, i thought might need a restraint, that i would consider what the patient is actually trying to tell me and that a hasty decision must not be made to the detriment of the clients well-being.

I like that it reinforces the reasons why behaviour is trying to tell us something and to examine the body, movements, sounds to see what the customer is trying to tell us. Would love to have the zero tolerance empowerment circle to have for my own research.
