Editors: Laura E. Kentley
Book Description:
This book explores the utilization of seclusions and restraints in schools. In certain circumstances, teachers and other staff may decide that it is necessary to restrain or seclude children in order to protect them from harming themselves or others. Some doctors and teachers contend that using seclusions and restraints can reduce injury and agitation and that it would be very difficult for organizations to run programs for children and adults with special needs without being able to use these methods. The authors highlight cases where staff at some programs employed unsafe restraint techniques, resulting in the death and abuse of teens in their care. Recent reports by advocacy groups indicate that similar restraint techniques have been used at public and private schools throughout the country.
