Course Introduction

The ability to successfully address antisocial behaviour requires an awareness of what antisocial behaviour is and how different forms are defined; the impact that the various forms have on the lives of people affected by it and how to record it once it has come to attention. This course will provide learners with knowledge of the various defined forms of antisocial behaviour, how to identify vulnerable victims and how to record antisocial behaviour so that an appropriate response can be generated to deal with it.

In this course, the learners will explore a common definition of antisocial behaviour and guidance as to how it is to be interpreted and also the opportunity to investigate three subcategories of antisocial behaviour being, nuisance, environmental and targeted antisocial behaviour will be identified and explained. Knowledge of how to identify vulnerable victims will be taught tougher with the three broad factors that make victims at higher risk; being history, vulnerability and support. The course will provide knowledge of the importance of accurate record keeping and appropriate referrals.
