Readers learn exactly what disturbed behaviour is and how it can manifest in many forms and in diverse jurisdictions. They become familiar with the stages of a crisis, the importance of active listening to a person in crisis, and what constitutes an appropriate or inappropriate approach by a client to a helping professional. They explore various types of aggression and hostage-taking behaviour. They consider the situations and needs of those who engage in self-harm. They also cultivate their own self-awareness and gain valuable information about self-care for those in helping professions.
Featuring approaches and strategies that have successfully been implemented over the course of years, Managing Disturbed Behaviour is ideal for courses in nursing, corrections, and counseling. It is also an excellent choice for training programs offered in correctional institutions, to probation and parole officers, or in community settings.
