De-escalation of Physical Aggression

  • : Online

Lecture Overview

Threats of physical or verbal aggression is NEVER acceptable, under any circumstances. Sometimes they can be explained due to an individual being severely unwell but this does not mean our own mental and emotional health is not affected. Geoffrey Ahern gives an unmissable presentation on managing these behaviours with de-escalation techniques and recognising when an individual is at risk of harming themselves or others.
