Dealing Professionally with Aggressive Behaviour

This training is designed for staff whose roles place them in contact with unpredictable, challenging and aggressive behaviour, ranging from verbal abuse to physical threat. It is especially suited to frontline staff where customer engagement is a high priority.

Workshop modules

This format supports operational requirements where an online platform is preferred. The foundation modules of the one-day workshop have been adapted for online delivery.

The essential modules are retained in a shorter format to ensure effective concentration and interaction for participants.
