Dealing with 'At Risk' DVA Clients

As a rehabilitation provider you would understand there is always potential for any individual to demonstrate threatening or aggressive behaviour without warning. Our client population is no different.

A client is considered ‘at risk’ if they:

  • threaten self harm
  • display aggression, or
  • threaten or commit physical assault.

HelpIt's an Emergency!

If you have contact with a DVA client whom you believe is a serious and imminent threat to you, themselves or others CALL THE POLICE ON 000. The police can provide you with assistance such as helping you deal with a client who is unwilling to accept your help.
