A surprising number of people work in occupations that require them to work on their own either in people’s homes or in other people’s premises – examples include social workers, community nurses, home helps, sales representatives and estate agents.

Sadly, for a variety of reasons, each day sees many people in these occupations subject to either verbal or physical violence or aggression.

This course looks at why such violence and aggression occurs.

It is suitable for anyone working alone:
- With clients or patients in their homes
- With a person or persons unknown to them in premises other than that of their employer
