As OCA staff review reports of abuse and neglect in out-of-home settings, we learn of injuries to children and youth from restraints that are employed not as a means to protect children or staff, but as contingent behavior management. We also hear concerns of family members and advocates related to restraints through our Helpline. Every restraint is a nonconsensual traumatic incident to the child and is potentially physically and emotionally harmful to the child, other children and staff. The OCA is an active partner in the Restraint/Seclusion Reduction Initiative (RSRI) and participates as a member of the data analysis and reporting subcommittee. This initiative presents opportunities to advocate for trauma-informed care and workforce development, issues that are priorities within the OCA.
