The Scottish Physical Restraint Action Group
Following on from Dr Laura Steckley of the University of Strathclyde's plenary at the SIRCC Conference in 2019 on physical restraint in residential child care, a Scottish Physical Restraint Action Group (SPRAG)was formed to continue the discussion and plan a way forward for Scotland. CELCIS published a series of blog posts from different perspectives, including how young people felt.
In this video we hear from members of SPRAG on the work so far, and their hopes for the future.
The Scottish Physical Restraint Action Group is on a journey. In this video, members of the group including a young person, outline the history of the group, its current actions and share their reflections, beliefs, hopes, and aspirations regarding physical restraint in Scotland. They challenge us to think about our next steps.
Viewers are asked where possible, to experience the content in its entirety as this allows for a full consideration of the complexity of the topic. But as physical restraint is an emotive subject some of the content of this video may be difficult to watch.
