A certain percentage, however, display behaviours which can be brought on from worry, fear, anger, denial, or anxiety – creating a difficult situation for all concerned. To successfully manage these uncomfortable and often unsafe situations, front line staff need special skills, and focused management strategies – if we are to interact with service users effectively and keep our workplace a safe for us to be and to feel good about.
