For Our Own Safety is devoted entirely to the subject of, and risks associated with, restraint and seclusion of children. This book is a collection of the diverse viewpoints presented at the international symposium, Examining the Safety of High-Risk Interventions for Children and Young People. It presents frank examination of the legal, ethical, and historical uses of physical restraints and seclusion. Also addressed in this collection are issues of safety, the psychological and emotional impacts of restraint, guidelines for development and use, as well as clinical and organizational strategies likely to reduce use. Intended for use by professionals who want to address the impact of aggression and violence in residential care, this volume contributes to the discussion of the appropriate use of high-risk interventions and the ways to improve the general quality of child residential treatment services though safe and harm-free environments.
