Participants will learn about recognizing the distinction between anger and rage experienced by their clients/consumers and how Stages of Change and pertinent interventions can be used in treatment that are related to the client’s awareness of the anger issues and readiness/willingness to change behaviors. Participants will learn about managing high-risk situations related to clients who are experiencing anger vs. rage. Conflict resolution strategies will be shared to use in the workplace in addition to engagement and intervention strategies that support their work with “difficult” clients. Participants will also learn about strategies that will support safety for themselves and for their clients in the workplace.
