When someone is faced with aggression and
violence in their workplace it will often be outside their
normal experience, expectstio0n and training. A nurse is
trained to provide support and care, a shop assistant is
trained to provide good customer service, a teacher is
trained to develop young people and a social worker is
trained to support clients. Although there is a recognition
that work related violence is on the increase, it is still a
shock to be on the receiving end of an unpleasant and
Traditional training methods involving
classroom instruction, group work and discussion have had
only limited success in developing the required knowledge,
skills and attitudes. This has led to the development of a
scenario based approach to learning how to deal effectively
with these risks.
Scenario-based learning embodies these key
The training is designed to
respond directly to the problems and situations faced by
delegates (staff) in the work place
The training incorporates
realistic scenarios that can be worked through to build
skills and confidence
The skills and techniques
introduced are simple and effective enough to be remembered
in a stressed situation
Whenever possible, the
training is delivered in an environment that emulates the
workplace, for example on a train/platform, on a bus, in a
ward or ambulance, shop, bar/restaurant, staircase,
corridors or toilets etc
Training employs experimental
learning techniques, where delegates are encouraged to work
through scenarios and practice techniques
Trainers adopt a facilitative
style that respects the skills and experience of the
delegates (staff/employees) and addresses key concerns the
they raise during the training
Learners still need to develop a knowledge
and understanding of the theories and models that help them
to understand and deal with the risk associated with
aggression and violence. The scenario based approach
embraces the traditional skills and techniques needed to
teach adults but then takes the learners into a more
practical level where they can apply their learning by
practising and rehearsing their responses within a realistic
safe learning environment.
