The use of physical restraints (PR) in inpatient pediatric psychiatric units (IPPU) is a highly prevalent clinical practice extended throughout the world. The high rates and negative consequences of PR are particularly serious with youth, and this practice has also important ethical, legal and human rights implications. Importantly, decisions about PR use are not only frequent but are also inconsistent, which suggests that existing PR protocols and standards may not be sufficient to regulate this practice in accordance to human rights standards. To date, health  professionals’ (HP) decision-making process about PR have not been explained in its complexity, and to what extent existing PR protocols are useful to guide PR decisions is unknown. The purpose of this study was to explore HPs’ decision making process about the use of PR in IPPU. Methods. Qualitative approach, with phenomenological and ethnographic strategies. Setting: IPPU in Madrid (Spain). Sampling: Maximum variation sampling according to professional category and range of experiences. Data collection: In-depth semi-structured interviews,  participant observation, other data sources (hospital documents and focus group transcripts). Data analysis: computer assisted qualitative data analysis package (ATLAS.ti.7) and the “Listening Guide Method”. Findings. Factors related with restraints depend on the contain capacity of the contextual matrix (inpatient psychiatric unit) . Regulatory elements (containers) are also variable elements, which leads to uncertainty-insecurity among health professionals. Hence, health professionals use restraints as a “secure” or “safe” element despite it may cause also harm.   Variability related with attributes (body and mind) cannot be contained. Hence, in order to control behavior,  professionals need to handle or restrain the patient.   Persons are not only affected by factors, but
