Individuals we support in the adult system sometimes make life-style choices or present with behavior challenges that put their own health and safety and that of others at risk. Some supports that are needed might restrict the person’s rights.  This training gives an overview of Clients’ Rights Limitations and Restrictive Measures and how to assure their thoughtful and appropriate use.

This training seminar is geared toward the adult system.


Participants will gain skills/competencies in the following areas:

  • What constitutes a Clients Rights Limitation or Restrictive Measure
  • What are Prohibited Practices
  • How to assess if these supports should be considered at all
  • How to thoughtfully incorporate any limitations into a support plan
  • How to monitor the use and effectiveness of these supports
  • How to meet documentation requirements
