Abuse is not acceptable, but unfortunately it does happen. The best way to ensure it is stopped is through raising awareness of the problems that can lead to abuse and by using quality training of good practice. 'Behind Closed Doors' is a 20 minute DVD that has been especially designed to be used as an essential part of safeguarding vulnerable adults and the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
'Behind Closed Doors' presents a unique training tool.
Commissioned by Plymouth Safeguarding Adults Board the DVD is in two parts. The first setting is a care home, the second a domestic residence. Each dramatic scene has been thoroughly researched with service users and the film shows over 100 examples of abuse and poor practice which will stimulate discussion and aid learning. The DVD also explores some of the background psychology in different relationships that can lead to abuse. The film stimulates discussion on all categories of abuse including: Neglect, Physical, Emotional/Psychological, Financial, Sexual, Discriminatory and Institutional.
Ideal for training care home staff, police officers, health care workers and volunteers this DVD is applicable to a wide range of audiences. It is:
• Versatile - covers many different training subjects
• Current – highlights issues regarding current legislation
• Engaging - aids learning through becoming ‘hooked by’ emotional drama
• E learning - can be licensed for use on your intranet
• Confidential - avoids using real case histories and the problem of confidentiality
The DVD also comes with a workbook giving a general overview of the subjects raised, a suggested training session, guidance notes and information sources. It should always be used with supporting material and local and national codes of practice. 'Behind Closed Doors' is aimed at individuals, practitioners, managers and trainers. It can be used as a trigger for any training connected with adult abuse, poor practice, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS).
