NOTE: Please be aware that the information on this page is a very rough draft and has not been fact-checked so should be used accordingly (taken with a pinch of salt)! However, it should (hopefully) give you some pointers and set you off in the right direction.

Physical interventions should never be used unless there are serious risks to the individual or others and even then, the minimal restrictive force necessary should be used.
