"I was privileged to receive a copy of The Use of the Basket-Hold report, which I found to be one of the most comprehensive and informative reports I have read on this particularly controversial and often emotive technique subject heading.
Mark has used his extensive knowledge and experience to produce historical reference relating to the origins of this technique, along with case law references regarding the use of these holds.
His report addresses the issues from legislative, regulation, medical and operational perspectives, allowing the reader to be much better informed about the hazards and risks associated with this technique.
I very strongly recommend that all training providers and industry sector clients should read this report to assist them in becoming better informed regarding their positive behaviour support strategies.
Thank you for the opportunity to have an early reading of your report which will change the consciousness of many clients, training providers and people associated within/around this area of challenging behaviours."
