De-Escalation & OVA Training

De-Escalation & Occupational Violence & Aggression Training

Resolution Education’s De-escalation and OVA Training is an interactive and strategy-rich training which teaches you an essential comprehensive set of skills needed to deal with agitated and aggressive clients or colleagues in various situations, and to diffuse threatening situations confidently and effectively.

Our aim is to provide you with the tools to de-escalate a situation enough for a healthy and constructive discussion to become possible.

Who Will Benefit From This Training?

Occupational Violence and Aggression (OVA) is unfortunately on the rise, and we believe that all employees liable to be in contact with difficult, aggressive or angry people will find this interactive training package, which includes proven strategies and techniques, extremely relevant and effective.

Resolution Education has trained personnel at all levels within various organisations, and we understand that the types of situations likely to be encountered can vary greatly depending on the different roles each employee or group of employees holds within an organisation. Therefore, all training is based on our proven A.D.P. Framework, and concepts are customised in order for staff to receive the most relevant and effective training possible.
