Breakaway techniques in PMVA (Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression) are strategies designed to safely disengage from physical altercations or aggressive encounters while minimizing the risk of harm to both the individual and the caregiver. Here's a detailed explanation of breakaway techniques:
Assessment and Awarenes

Before employing breakaway techniques, it's crucial to assess the situation and be aware of potential triggers or warning signs of aggression. This allows caregivers to intervene early and prevent escalation whenever possible.

Maintaining Distance

Breakaway techniques often start with maintaining a safe distance from the individual exhibiting aggressive behavior. This can involve using verbal communication, body language, and environmental factors to create space and avoid physical confrontation.

Redirection

If verbal de-escalation fails and the individual becomes physically aggressive, caregivers may attempt redirection techniques. This involves redirecting the individual's attention or energy away from the source of their aggression using verbal cues or gentle physical guidance.

Blocking and Deflection

If the individual attempts to physically engage with the caregiver, techniques such as blocking and deflection can be employed to protect oneself while minimizing harm to the individual. This may include using arms or hands to deflect strikes or create barriers between the individual and the caregiver.

Controlled Movement

Breakaway techniques often emphasize controlled movement to create distance and evade physical contact without escalating the situation. Caregivers are trained to move calmly and purposefully, avoiding sudden or erratic movements that may provoke further aggression.

Disengagement and Exit

Once a safe distance is established, caregivers should disengage from the situation and seek assistance if necessary. This may involve calmly exiting the area or calling for help from colleagues or security personnel.

Documentation and Reporting

After a breakaway incident, caregivers should document the details of the encounter, including what led to the aggression, the techniques used to de-escalate or disengage, and any injuries sustained. This information is essential for reporting and follow-up procedures.

Post-Incident Support

Following a breakaway incident, caregivers should receive appropriate support and debriefing to address any emotional or physical effects of the encounter. This may include counseling, medical attention, or additional training as needed.

Overall, breakaway techniques in PMVA emphasize the importance of proactive intervention, effective communication, and controlled physical movement to manage aggressive behavior safely and responsibly. Training in these techniques is essential for caregivers working in environments where the risk of violence or aggression is present.

By the end of this training, candidates will be able to:

1. Assess and manage risk in challenging situations.
