Aggression and violence directed towards staff in the caring services is a problem that is receiving increasing attention in both the professional and national press. Although there is a growing academic interest and body of knowledge in the subject of the short term management of violence, few successful approaches to the subject have been devised. This leaves the majority of staff feeling vunerable. This publication will address the issue of violence from a theoretical, organisational, legal and practice perspective in order to provide staff in the caring professions with a framework to guide future practice in this area. Particular attention will be paid to how the individual victims of violence can be supported both by the organisation and by each other.
