About Us

Ukeru (the Japanese word for “receive”) is a safe, comforting and restraint-free crisis management technique developed by and for behavioral health caregivers and educators. 

We believe that all intervention — educational and behavioral — should be built on an approach of comfort versus control. To help make this a reality, we provide training on the conceptual ideas — such as trauma informed care and conflict resolution — as well as the physical techniques that minimize the need for restraints and seclusion.

Our award-winning program has helped behavioral health providers and schools reduce the use of restraint, seclusion, and injury, while lowering workers’ compensation costs and employee turnover.
