The Philosophy of PCM

PCMA believes that students, persons with developmental or other disabilities and others with behavioral challenges have a right to the most effective and humane treatment provided by the most competent and qualified people possible. Effective and humane treatment includes safety, a focus on proactive and non-coercive methods, opportunities for individuals to remain in the least restrictive settings possible, freedom from excessive use of medications and freedom from inappropriate incarceration and tactics designed for criminals.

Professional Crisis Management (PCM) supports PCMA’s philosophy, mission and values by setting the highest training and certification standards in the field and employing the most sound, scientifically based and time proven non-physical and physical strategies.
