JMJ Holds Restrictive Practice Info Session


“Learning never exhausts the mind.” – Leonardo Da Vinci


JMJ Disability Serv Pty Ltd is committed to offering professional development opportunities and training for its staff. Its Darwin branch recently held an information session on restrictive practices conducted by the NT Restrictive Practices Authorisation Unit. Clinical specialist Rosa Nardone led this.


According to the NDIS Commission website, a restrictive practice refers to “any practice or intervention that has the effect of restricting the rights or freedom of movement of a person with a disability.” Restrictive practices are used to manage a person’s behaviour to protect the person, other people, or property from harm. Some restrictive practices require regulation, especially if it involves seclusion, and chemical, mechanical, physical, and environmental restraint. On the other hand, there are prohibited forms of restrictive practices. These are certain types of physical restraint (prone and supine), punitive, and psychosocial restraint that is prohibited.


It was an insightful and empowering session for our JMJ support workers to understand better and handle behaviours of concern.
