    Has anyone done Mapa training? 3rd Nov 08 at 12:54 PM

    I am due to do my 6 day Mapa training but the information has been a bit vague. I have been told by a couple of people that they wear jogging bottoms a T-shirt and trainers. The email I had about it, just said comfortable clothing. I have phoned the place where it is going to be held and they told me it is smart/casual! I am a bit confused and as it is tomorrow I really don't want to turn up in the completely wrong things.
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Smart jogging bottoms? :confused:

    What's Mapa training? That might help ...

    Thanks for replying Sue. I am doing the training at the moment, so I have figured it out. I was confused, as one person said to wear comfortable clothing, one said jogging bottoms and another said smart/casual.
    MAPA is used by the NHS and other trusts. It is a way of teaching controlled restraint. The correct ways of restraining people, in that I mean if it is needed in your job, not in every day life.
    Thanks again.

    Life is about give and take, if you can't give why should you take?

    If my spelling is bad, it means I am having a fibro fog day, and not something you should be bullying me about.
