Violence is not the best. One girl in my unit is in the Intensive Support Unit (ISU) this week. She flipped out and assaulted some staff members. She bit a few staff members, scratched them, and kicked and punched them. They all pressed charges on her.  She will not be on the unit for awhile, until she follows directions and changes her attitude.  I am probably going to work in ISU within a couple of weeks to see how the more violent kids are handled, especially if they try to fight.  I think it will be good training! (I am already Crisis Prevention Certified- don't worry- I know how to do safety holds/restraints) Anyways, let's hope that she starts doing better and that nothing like that will happen again or at least not on the unit with the other girls.
