    I am a bit surprised that you say that. Prior to learning Mandt, the staff at my old facility (which was also in Oklahoma, incidentally) had no training in any restraint technique at all. We simply muddled through as best we could. After schooling in Mandt, there was a perceptible increase in staff confidence that we could handle anything that came along, along with a dramatic drop in the number of restraint situations. In the times that I used it, I never encountered a situation where I found it inadequate.

    Orca, I should have been more specific. The hospital I work in is located in Arkansas and is the only psych facility for a several hundred mile radius. We get the worst type of patients. Police have brought us people that have fought and injured them! (and we have NO male staff on the nightshift)

    Mandt would have worked with the type of patients we used to have. (it does seem to work sometimes with children) I do think the concepts are good.
