About this module

With increasing levels of anxiety, mental health challenges, abusive, aggressive and violent behaviour towards frontline staff, navigating health and safety wellbeing compliance and governance has never been more challenging. It’s now more important than ever to equip frontline staff with proven strategies to de-escalate and stay safe in conflict situations.

Within this fully immersive experience, the learner has the opportunity to safely manage conflict situations using proven techniques, developing resilience and confidence.

At the end of this module, learners will be able to assess a conflict situation and determine if the person is displaying neutral, escalated or violent behaviour based on their tones, gestures and space, use space and exit strategies to stay safe in situations involving a violent person, and much more.
