Date & Time of Course

  •  10 July, 2024
     9:30 am - 3:30 pm


This one day course will equip you with the skills, knowledge and techniques required to effectively handle difficult and aggressive behaviour and avoid these escalating into a potentially violent situation.

You will learn how to manage your own response to situations of conflict and aggression, as well as learning how to connect with and calm others. The course will explore the potential reasons behind aggression and how to spot the early warning signs.  Most importantly you will learn how to manage difficult situations calmly and professionally by using a range of effective and creative techniques.

This course will support you to:

  • understand why people get angry or display challenging behaviour
  • understand the links between complex needs (alcohol/ substance misuse, trauma, mental health) and challenging behaviour
  • identify your own triggers and help clients to identify theirs
  • recognise how your own communication skills can impact on your clients’ behaviour (verbal and non-verbal)
  • apply techniques for defusing difficult or aggressive situations
  • assess risk and keep yourself and others safe
  • de-brief effectively with others

Who should attend?

Suitable for all frontline staff who face the possibility of aggression or violence in their workplace.




This course will be delivered online over 1 day on 10 July 2024. This online course will not be recorded.

All of the course was useful, and informative. It’s made me look at things from a different angle and will definitely help going forward
