What’s covered on the day?

People may sometimes behave in a way that is considered challenging and can be very distressing for the person, their families and carers. This session will explore the reasons theoretically as to why a person might be behaving in this way, enabling you as the primary care giver to feel more confident with enhanced skills to deal with these situations, explore why they may be occurring and how to minimise these, with the possibility of preventing them occurring.


A knowledge assessment will be completed by the learners to allow them to demonstrate an effective understanding of the learning outcomes. There is no practical application of any breakaway techniques included in this course. A Certificate of Attendance will also be issued, valid for 3 years.
