Who is the course designed for?

Individuals who may have a need to disengage or breakaway from situations of physically challenging behaviour, when their de-escalation skills, through no fault of their own, have not been sufficient to resolve a situation.  It could also be that you are a Lone Worker or Remote Worker and therefore work away from others for significant periods of time. 


This course is also beneficial to those who find themselves travelling alone from time-to-time.
