Learning Community

Learning Community for Seclusion and Restraint Prevention
in Children’s Residential Centers

This project equips member agencies with evidence-based tools and strategies aimed at preventing use of seclusion and restraint in residential and day treatment programs.

Participating agencies collect data on use of seclusion and restraint.  Aggregate data is reported back to agencies, enabling them to benchmark their performance across the entire group of participating agencies.

The Learning Community also advances the Six Core Strategies to Reduce Seclusion and Restraint Use, an evidence-based practice.


This project is part of our Residential Center & Group Home Committee.  There is no cost for Ohio Children’s Alliance members to participate in the Learning Community.  

Contact Mark Mecum to learn how your agency can participate.
