BOA offers ‘Defusing Difficult Situation’ training for Members

Discounted offer for all BOA Members

As with many service-based industries catering to the public, from time to time we will encounter people and situations that can challenge the safety of our customers and well-being of our staff.

BOA realises the importance of ensuring that all persons within our workplace are kept safe, and on Wednesday 5 October 2016, will be hosting a ‘Defusing Difficult Situations’ training session, from 12pm – 5pm, with a light lunch served from 11:30am.

In this session, trainer Chris McGrath will take a practical and strategy-based approach to identifying triggers for challenging behaviour and address the following:

  • Understanding where unusual or threatening behaviour comes from
  • Recognising aggression and hostility
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Defusing strategies and de-escalation techniques
  • Recognising the impact on self and the importance of self-care

We welcome you and your staff to join us for this discounted training day.

TIME: 12.00 – 5.00pm; arrive from 11.30 for a light lunch prior to the session.
