Based on the author's dangerous behaviour training courses, this invaluable book will enable helping professionals to implement good practice while dealing with the stress, confusion, fear and anxiety that dangerous situations give rise to. ""Written for professionals who may experience violence in the course of their work, this book is - unusually - not about helping the violent person become less violent (worthy though that goal undoubtedly is) but about helping the Professional to be safe. In this, it is a welcome addition to the Literature on social work. Social workers, nurses, care staff and others are often expected to Work in tense, fraught situations in which emotions can run high. This book is unique in offering practical Tips to help guide professionals in responding to threatening and violent behaviour."

Make sure you read this book and grasp the de-escalation Tips and Safety strategies it offers, and thereby ensure that you live to fight another day."
