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:
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.
