charities (A survey by the Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) and case studies collected by Positive and Active Behaviour Support Scotland (PABSS)). Both the CBF survey and the PABSS case study data have revealed
concerning results regarding incidents of, and attitudes towards, restrictive intervention. Overall the data showed a high number and regular occurrence of restrictive intervention cases.
