MNABA POSITION ON SECLUSION AND RESTRAINT
The Minnesota Northland Association for Behavior Analysis (MNABA) supports the elimination of restraint and seclusion as components of therapeutic treatment regimens for children, adolescents, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and mental health disorders. Restraint should only be used in the case of emergency (immediate threat to safety of the individual or others in close proximity), and should be considered a safety protocol not having therapeutic benefit.
