Physical & Psychological Management Training
GINGER E. BLUME, Ph.D.:
As PMT's Program Director, Dr. Blume's experience as a psychologist is uniquely wedded with her expertise in personal safety. She developed a psychological model for determining how to safely approach the violent/aggressive person and how to reduce the fear of both staff and the upset person in the process.
She received her Ph.D. from the University of Florida and was affiliated with Yale University throughout her doctoral internship at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in West Haven, CT. She had previously trained for three years in the Veteran's system in Florida and had consulted for several years to Florida's Dept. of Mental Retardation, as well as to private schools for learning disabled children.

As PMT's Training Director, Mr. Lowery has over twenty-five years of experience as a teacher and training consultant. He has trained personnel in a multitude of settings, including forensic mental health agencies, psychiatric hospitals, police agencies, emergency medical centers, public and private schools, group homes, community mental health centers, to name a few.
From 1987 to present, under his direction, PMT Associates, Inc., has administered the largest educational project in the history of Connecticut’s Department of Mental Retardation and Mental Health. He has trained staff from other agencies to implement his programs in-house.
