Many workers have job descriptions and duties that put them in direct contact with people who are emotionally charged. Human services case managers working with clients, customer service representatives working with consumers, or property managers dealing with tenants is a partial list of workers who are confronted by people who may challenge or even threaten them.

There are things that can be done preemptively to reduce the likelihood of challenging behaviors escalating or resolve issues more quickly and effectively when they do. Having the skills to prevent or deescalate challenging situations increases staff confidence.

Training options are:
