Book Description

27 Jun 2003 034081036X 978-0340810361
During one year alone 65,000 violent attacks were reported in the NHS. Incidents of violence and aggression are steadily increasing and consequently personal safety in the working environment can no longer be taken for granted. Care providers need to know how to de-fuse such incidents, ensuring their own safety and that of their clients, while keeping control of the situation.

Maintaining Control provides a unique introductory guide to the effective management of violence and aggression within the clinical environment. It explores all facets of the subject and explains simple, but highly effective, strategies for use in and out of the working environment.

This new book enables the reader to understand both the principles and the appropriate techniques, regardless of academic or physical ability. It approaches the subject matter from a unique personal safety perspective, the main priority being the safety of the client and of the practitioner, no matter what the setting or situation.

Issues of practical management are covered, along with a fully illustrated guide to Breakaway Techniques and Non-Aversive Physical Interventions. The practical techniques, along with the Management and Personal Safety principles, make Maintaining Control invaluable to any face to face Service Provider, including those working outside of the clinical environment.

What a wonderful book. The writers obviously have an indepth knowledge of self defense techniques coupled with management of often unpredictable violent and aggresive behavour, leaving the reader with confidence that they will have the edge in any situation where they could come up against violent actions towards themselves or indeed others.

A must read for all those interested in self defense and personal safety.
