Aggressive-Behaviour Control: The ABC Course™

Powerful non-physical techniques for handling aggression and violence effectively.

First run in 1983 and constantly developed since then, this course is the 'original' of courses on the non-physical management of aggression. Attended so far by about 100,000 participants it covers how and why anger and aggression develop, how to prevent aggressive and violent incidents (both to oneself and others), key techniques for responding to an actively aggressive or violent person, and what to do after an incident has been resolved. Everything you need to know about non-physical responses to anger, aggression and violence.

Ethical Escape
 
Breakaway techniques that are both ethical and effective and retain the dignity of all concerned.

Physical techniques should be regarded as the last resort, so all the techniques taught on this course are designed to fulfill three criteria: (1) They strive to maintain the dignity of both the aggressor and the professional. (2) They aim not to encourage future episodes of aggression (e.g. 'revenge'). (3) They must be in line with the normal professional endeavour of maintaining a good relationship with others.

Caring Control

Replacing 'control and restraint' with effective physical techniques which retain everybody's dignity and maintain good long-term relationships.

This course strives to maintain the dignity of both the professional and the aggressor,it aims not to encourage future episodes of aggression (e.g. revenge), and it aims to retain good relationships.

All of these are very important not least because some people enjoy the struggle involved in a physical fight and this is something we do not wish to feed. Neither do we want to motivate anyone to seek revenge at a later date. So for both ethical and practical reasons the dignity and caring of the techniques taught on this course are very important.

Debriefing Survivors of Major Incidents

It is difficult to know what to do after a major incident, but 'nothing' is rarely the best option.

Major incidents such as patient-suicide, assaults, severe self harm, hostage takings etc can be very stressful for the staff concerned. Through lecture, case study and role play, this course examines how best to respond to such situations to minimise the stress; when it's best to say little or nothing, when to get a group of staff together, what to say, what procedures to follow, etc. It provides very clear guidelines in an often confused and difficult area.

"If the ratings went from 1 to 100, I would circle 100 both times, absolutely fabulous … The tutor's experience really shone through in the two day presentation and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the course, especially the stories. Thank you, please come back."

Mark Edwards, Key Worker (Ethical Escape)


"The tutor successfully completed the almost unheard of task of providing excellent, informative training to a group of very tricky psychologists! He was interesting, knowledgeable and greatly added to our understanding. He represented APT very, very well and he has increased my likelihood of using APT again.”

Joyce Fullarton, Principal Psychologist (Debriefing Survivors of Major Incidents)


“This course rates as one of the best I have attended. It was made so much better by the fact that the tutor is a working practitioner with a wealth of experience in his field and could easily relate theory to practice."

Course Delegate (The ABC Course)


"I feel both motivated and inspired, I can hardly wait to get back to work and put some of the things I have learnt into practice."
