Question: In service users with challenging behaviour in an inpatient forensic setting, how effective is the RAID (Reinforce, Appropriate, Implode Disruptive) approach developed by APT (Association of Psychological Therapies) when compared to any other behavioural intervention in reducing levels of challenging behaviour, and any related outcomes (e.g. less impact upon staff)?


No high quality research evidence was found that directly addresses this question, and therefore no definite clinical implications can be made. Research is needed that aims to assess the efficacy of the intervention, directly comparing to other treatment options.
