Identifying individual and contextual factors influencing recourse to restraint and confinement measures in rehabilitation centers: a pilot study

Project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada

This pilot project aims to identify the individual and contextual factors influencing the recourse to restraint and confinement measures to manage youth aggression in rehabilitation centers. In addition to enriching existing scientific knowledge, this study will support the development of intervention strategies to reduce the use of restraint and confinement on the basis of subjective biases (i.e., a reflexive practice). In the past, reduced restraint and confinement has been associated with fewer injuries among youth and staff, less staff turnover, greater staff satisfaction, and greater success in youth rehabilitation. The results can also benefit other environments where restraint and confinement is used in order to manage aggression (e.g., hospitals, prisons).
