WHAT WILL I LEARN?

 

In the morning session, you will begin with an exploration of why some people find it difficult to manage and regulate their emotions. You will then learn about the kinds of behaviours which might demonstrate someone is experiencing these challenges and the strategies they might use deal with this. The session then looks at a range of strategies and techniques that you can use in order to help you work effectively with people in this situation.

The afternoon session focuses on the steps that could lead to violent behaviour. You will begin by looking at why people might demonstrate angry or aggressive behaviour, looking at the role of factors such as family background, personality, substance use and mental health. Th escalation of anger into violent behaviour is then explored and throughout, you will learn how to recognise the signs that a person is becoming angry or aggressive and learn some strategies for de-escalating their behaviour. Throughout the day, there will be an emphasis on knowledge and skills that will support you in your everyday professional life and there will be opportunities to reflect on what you have learnt.
