There is a broad international consensus that where any form of coercion is used, preference should be given to the least restrictive and least dangerous measure. Coercive interventions exist in a dynamic clinical context, where the availability of one intervention may have an impact on the frequency and nature of other interventions. (Sethi et.al, 2018). Since 2014, extensive work has been done to prepare a new norwegian mental health staff training program for prevention and management of aggression and violence in the mental health sector. ). The aim of the project was to standardize and quality assure such training to staff in the mental health sector. The project resulted in the staff-training program “MAP”. (Management of Aggression Program). MAP has been a collaborative project between the SIFER network, the four regional high security forensic units, Helse Stavanger and Helse Fonna.
