This DVD has been prepared to help a wide variety of people to develop their understanding of how best to handle situations that may involve aggressive behaviour. It is a 37-minute presentation that is divided into five parts. Part One discusses the steps that can be taken to prevent aggression. Part Two explores the warning signs that we need to learn how to recognise. In Part Three, the discussion switches to a consideration of how we can defuse situations that involve aggression. In Part Four, the focus is on protecting ourselves. The final part is concerned with dealing with the aftermath, ‘picking up the pieces’, as it were. This DVD offers a sound foundation for more confident and effective approaches to situations that involve actual or potential aggression.
