Dangerous Behaviour

Dramatic Training in Dealing with Violence, Suicide, Self-Harm, Psychosis & Trauma

From DDDB

IMPACT delivers unique, original and dramatic courses in the field of Personal Safety and Crisis Mental Health. These courses are designed and delivered by Dr Iain Bourne. The signature course is the dramatic, intensive and widely renowned course "Difficult, Disturbing and Dangerous Behaviour."

The "Fringe Theatre" approach involves "live" critical encounters visually and dramatically performed before the training group allowing for a highly focussed, evocative and collective experience. It also ensures that, rather than the training being lost in a fog of words, participants can see what is being talked about, engage with it directly and determine how the course material stands up to their own personal scrutiny.

Although the training is dramatic, the purpose is to illustrate how good practice can realistically be delivered under the most extenuating of circumstances taking into account all the complications found in practice.

We keep ourselves at the fore-front of current practice in health, social care, housing, education and enforcement. Our aim is to provide participants with the very best information, awareness, guidance, skills and resources - right up to date.

Although there are a number of standardised courses, any of these can be combined, adjusted or adapted to suit your needs. We deliver courses across all professional groups, settings, tasks and circumstances.
