CCG Physical Intervention Technique – Details

Use of a physical intervention technique during a crisis is taught to be used as a last resort. The CCG approach to physical crisis intervention is based on 6 distinct initial objectives.

When creating our techniques, careful consideration and time was taken to ensure it was not only effective, but incredibly realistic and based on real-world violence and challenging behavior.  Please read through the objectives and additional factors which make our system unique, respected, and unequalled.

  • Must be SAFE, NON-HARMFUL, and NON-TRAUMATIC for all involved

  • Must be IMMEDIATELY effective in stopping harm from occurring


  • Must NOT be based on strength
