Intrusive techniques (observation during times which are generally private, or impinging upon personal space) Use of token economies (points, chips, etc. given to be exchanged for something else) Psychotropics used for behavioral control (meds prescribed to prevent harm, and not related to a mental illness) Restrictive programs/techniques including restraints (limits rights, movement, etc.)

4 What types of techniques are prohibited and therefore not reviewed? Aversive Techniques (infliction of negative stimuli such as water misting, mouthwash, etc.) Physical Management (physically restricting movement) Restraint (use of a device to restrict movement) Seclusion (placed in a room that one is unable to get out of
