・During delirium, do not place weapons within reach so as not to lead to dangerous behavior.

3) Education plan 《EP》

・Explain that intimidation and violence against others are subject to punishment under the Penal Code, and think together about what to do to prevent the same thing from happening again.

・Take a look at the background of elder abuse and think together about ways to eliminate the causes of stress.
・Explain that child abuse is a crime under the Abuse Prevention Law, Child Welfare Law, and Penal Code, and think together about what can be done to prevent recurrence.
* Criminal law: assault crimes, injury crimes, coercion crimes, guardian obscenity and guardian sexual intercourse crimes, guardian abandonment crimes, etc.

is a joint course (both)
* Abuse Prevention Law: There are penalties for disobeying a restraining order. No other penalties.
• Look at the causes of parental stress behind the abuse and get involved to alleviate the stress.
For example, in the case of childcare stress, you can try to reduce your burden by enlisting the cooperation of other family members and family support, and by making good use of retort packs of baby food. If the child has insomnia at night, consider increasing the child’s daytime activity so that he/she can sleep at night. If the child cries and has no time to rest if he/she is not always present, create a safe environment where the child can play alone so that he or she does not have to be present or does other things while the child is watching from a distance. As a result, you can make time for yourself to rest.
・Seek the understanding of the people around the person who is abusive or violent, and think together about what kind of coping method is appropriate.
・Introduce abuse clinics and recidivism prevention programs run by counselors, and work to prevent recurrence.
・Propose that social resources can be used when violence is caused due to alcohol dependence.
・Encourage consultation at specialized medical institutions, such as hospitals and clinics that advocate alcohol dependence treatment.
• Encourage participation in dependent party meetings called “self-help groups”.
(Danshukai and AA are representative groups for alcohol dependence.)
