Aggression Control: Recognition, Proactive Approaches and Diffusion
This course is based on a PowerPoint presentation developed by Ce-Classes.com about how to control aggression in clients. This course first defines aggression and details the various types of aggression. Facts about workplace violence are discussed including the types, incidence and consequences of workplace violence. The course then goes on to discuss both warning signs and common triggers for aggressive behavior. Prevention strategies are reviewed as well as strategies for diffusion of aggressive situations as they are occurring. The course then reviews what to do when responding to an aggressive or violent client. The course ends with what to do after an incident of aggression or violence has occurred, including instructions for documentation.
Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course is also helpful for other practitioners, such as certified addictions counselors or staff who work in residential settings with clients. This course is appropriate for beginning and intermediate level practitioners who wish to develop their skills in the areas of aggression control.
