Managing Challenging Behaviours of Clients

 

3 Hour Presentation

Suitable for all staff who deal with clients particularly if mental health issues are present


Sometimes we have limited understanding of how someone’s behaviour can change or be affected simply as a result of what is happening to them with their mental health problem.
Frustration, anger, fear, annoyance – all of these can be difficult behaviours to manage. This workshop is about identifying the behaviours and learning strategies to manage communication and create some degree of clarity, harmony and sanity for all.  It introduces some symptoms of mental health problems that may influence the person's behaviour.  This workshop will leave staff feeling more confident.

Come prepared with some thoughts of the behaviours that really cause problems in situations with your clients.
