  答 :

問題一:  專業導師為什麼需要持續進修及認證 (Instructor Refresher Course & Accreditation)

  • 所有持有英國 NFPS「Restraint & Breakaway Instructor Accreditation」的導師認證有效期為一年,發證機構為確保導師符合最新安全指引、典範實務 「BEST PRACTICE 」及專業水平,要求所有導師必須每年參與持續進修 (refresher course)  及 通過評核 (Assessment),經評核合格後再獲年度認可證書(Accreditation)。
  • 時實上,隨著研究結果累積,很多以前認為「有效」的介入手法可能已經證明為「無效」,甚至「危險」。在知識爆炸年代,很多新知識和研究都會出現,「畢業」的導師必須透過持續進修,吸收新知識,才能與時並進。不進則退,一個如此顯淺的道理,不用多說,作為一位負責任及專業的導師,持續進修肯定是不能迴避的,理由很簡單,導師怎樣確保其學員擁有最新的知識及有效的介入手法?如果一個導師的知識是「經年不變」,對培訓的發展肯定是倒退,對學生的學習肯定是災難性的!

問題二:  為何要選擇持有年度認證資格導師執教?

  • 根據暴力行為控制及脫身法培訓的典範實務 「BEST PRACTICE 」,英國 NFPS 標準為每年必須重修及通過評核,而美國 The Mandt System ® 標準為每兩年必須重修及通過評核。
  • 最新研究報告,部份舊有的脫身法及控制法技巧並未能符合英國及美國的安全標準,容易做成職員、服務使用者受傷或死亡,已不建議醫護人員使用,個別技巧亦在英國及美國嚴禁使用。
  • 為確保所學的技巧為最新及符合相關安全指引,我們建議機構 / 學員使用持有年度認證的導師。事實上,我們學會已更新及停止教授 2008-2012 年的大部份脫身法技巧及控制法,以符合英國和美國相關指引及安全指數。

問題三:  請問如何查證導師符合年度認可資格?

  • 持有年度英國 NFPS 認可培訓機構名稱 (Licensed Centre)已刊載在英國 NFPS 網頁: NFPS Licensed Centres List 歡迎按此查看
  • 參與機構亦可向服務提供者要求查看導師是否持有年度認可證書 (Accreditation Certificate / Refresher Certificate),確保質素。
  • 本學會全部導師通過年度英國 NFPS 評核,並領有認可證書,歡迎各機構查詢。
