At West Coast Centre for Learning, we're passionate about training BC school staff in The Mandt System®. This program transforms classroom cultures, significantly boosting educational outcomes. Mandt for Schools empowers all educational staff, from educational assistants and teachers, to administrators, to collaboratively foster a safe and caring school environment, nurturing positive school cultures.

Training for Educators

Providing the tools for educators to manage themselves first before attempting to manage the behaviors of students. By recognizing the early warning signs of potentially aggressive behaviours, we teach educators at all levels of the school community to interact proactively. Our primary focus in Mandt for Schools is on prevention rather than de-escalation.




Key Benefits:
  • By preventing violence and aggression, students and staff are safer.
  • By understanding the context of the behaviour of students, staff respond instead of react and address the safety needs of all people.
  • Increase the quality of staff relationships and the therapeutic environment.
  • Build confidence in responding to events and reduce fear in crisis situations.
  • Create an environment of dignity and respect that support positive interactions with others.
  • Support the development of positive attitudes and philosophy for crisis situations by all people certified in The Mandt System®.
  • Reduce the frequency, intensity, duration and need of physical restraints incidents.
  • Provide basic tools and techniques for a safe and respectful workplace.
  • Reduce crisis incidents resulting in less workplace stress.
  • Concepts and skills can be and should be taught to students and their families.



Relationship Based Crisis Interaction
