Volunteer Self-Study Workbook – Dealing with Difficult Behaviour


Volunteer Self-Study Workbook – Dealing with Difficult Behaviour


Because voluntary organisations deal with such a huge cross section of people, it is inevitable that some of those people will present with challenging behaviour and this can make life difficult for volunteers. If your volunteers are not trained to cope you could lose them.

Product Description

This pack is available as a download only. All our Self-study Volunteer Workbooks are now available in fillable pdf format. You can either print them off for the volunteer or, where appropriate, email to the volunteer for online completion and return.

Sometimes clients can seem ‘difficult’ or present with challenging behaviour and volunteers do not always know how to deal with that. This self-study workbook helps them explore the reasons behind the difficult behaviour and gives them strategies to cope.

On completion of the workbook, volunteers will:

  • have identified difficult behaviour
  • have thought about the impact of difficult behaviour on both the volunteers and the organisation
  • have recognised the reasons behind this type of behaviour
  • have explored ways of dealing with difficult behaviour
  • have considered how to create effective boundaries

This Workbook includes exercises on exploring the implications of clients’ difficult behaviour and practical activities on how to deal with it. There is information on problem solving included. We know it is not always easy to arrange training sessions for a group of volunteers – time and funding restraints prevail. So in response to our customers’ suggestions we have developed the self-study workbooks that volunteers can complete in their own time and which will help them to gain the information and knowledge they will need to carry out their role effectively. For those volunteers who have literacy or support needs this workbook can be completed with the help of a ‘buddy’.

Once complete the volunteer meets with the co-ordinator to go through their responses and deal with any questions or concerns. The volunteer then has their own personal resource that they can add to and refer back to whenever necessary.

Also included in the download is

  •  A complimentary multi-licence Skills Portfolio for use by your volunteers
  • A sample completion certificate in Word for you to customise

This Workbook is just £8.00.
