Training



Dealing with behavioural issues in the workplace requires a combination of understanding of legislation, the psychology of work and people, as well as the “soft skills” in handling it in a consistent and fair manner.



If you would like to see if you would benefit from training, why not test your knowledge here.

The training approach allows for personal development and practice of the skills required in the handling of the intricacies of demanding situations. It includes the use of projective techniques, videos, group work and peer feedback to ensure opportunity for practical skills development.

Training costs are customised according to required topic(s), duration and required training material. Training is provided to employers, insurers, practitioners and training institutions on topics such as:
