Practice standards for health professionals, including osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors and sports therapists stress the importance of communication with our clients.  


Have you ever wondered why a patient isn’t completely honest with you or doesn’t commit to the rehabilitation programme you set?  Protective Behaviours Training provides a framework to ensure the wellbeing of both practitioner and patient by creating a safe and effective space where the patient’s feelings, thought and behaviours are taken into account and the language used ensures the treatment received is at its most effective.


All of our training is delivered by two skilled and experienced trainers to ensure the highest quality delivery for participants.  We believe this enables us to tailor training accordingly and also allow for individual support and attention for everybody.


Introduction to Protective Behaviours (PB) - 6 hours CPD

A one day introduction to the Protective Behaviours Framework includes looking at:

  • The relationship between feelings, thoughts and behaviours

  • What feeling safe actually means and the effect it has on our bodies and the decisions we make

  • Unwritten rules and how they impact us


Evening and weekend options available


Protective Behaviours Foundation Course - 12hours CPD and optional OCN level 3 accreditation


The foundation course looks at the protective behaviours framework in more detail and importantly looks at ways to use the framework in practice to problem solve and improve patient care.


The learning outcomes for the course are that each participant will be able to:

  • understand what makes up the Language of Safety and be able to use this in order to communicate with patients in a way that enhances relationships and empowers all involved

  • explain some of the possible effects of Unwritten Rules

  • describe the relationship between Feelings, Thoughts and Behaviour and use this model to problem solve events

  • define a personal concept of Safety

  • describe the function of Early Warning Signs in the PB process

  • describe how a patient/client might use the idea of Personal Networks to support their treatment/rehabilitation

  • describe how someone could use the seven PB Strategies as an integral part of their practice
