Physical intervention is the term used to cover a range of techniques or situations whereby a person or persons may guide, hold or restraint the movement of another person.  

Examples of the term physical intervention include:
Guiding – the physical guiding of a person from one place to another is a method of physical intervention although it is not generally seen as a restraint (ie; non-restrictive holding).
Holding – generally requires the holding of a person with the intention of redirecting their movement towards a safe area. It is often regarded as the least invasive form of physical intervention.
Restraining – requires a person to have their movements physically restricted by the intentional use of reasonable force by another person. 
Disengagement / Breakaways – is a term used to describe techniques which are useful towards enabling staff to remove themselves from positions of danger and where necessary to seek the help of others. 

When can physical intervention be used:
• As a last resort
• Prevention of injury to oneself or others
• Preventing serious damage to property, which may result in harm
• When behaviour is likely to be prejudicial to maintenance of good order and discipline (ie; educational settings)
• In the best interest of the service user, resident, client or customer

Law and legislation – relating to the use of reasonable, proportionate and necessary force are discussed and explored on all courses where the management of known (ie; against a care plan or histology) or unknown (dynamic risk assessment) risks may require the use of physical intervention.
