MANAGING CHALLENGING BEHAVIOUR COURSE

Course Background
Anger management is a term used to describe the skills required to recognise that we, or someone else, is becoming angry and to take the appropriate action to deal with such situations in a positive way.

We all feel angry from time to time, yet such feelings can lead us to say or do things that we later regret. Anger can reduce our inhibitions and make us act inappropriately. Sometimes, anger is not expressed externally but remains as internal rumination. Aggression, in contrast, refers to intentional behaviour that aims to harm another person. Often, it reflects a desire for dominance and control.

Research shows that about 90 percent of aggressive incidents are preceded by anger. However, only 10 percent of anger experiences are actually followed by aggression. People often want to act aggressively when angry but, fortunately, most do not actually take aggressive actions. Also, there is sometimes an impulse to engage in problem solving behaviours when angry.

Purpose
This one day training course aims to provide you with a host of skills and safe strategies to deal effectively with challenging behaviours, including anger and aggression. Attendees will discuss various strategies to safely manage impromptu behaviours and anger events, using appropriate distraction skills and calming strategies.
