What is the impact of high conflict behaviours on your complaint handling?

Tuesday 10, Mar 2020

15% of the population have high conflict behaviours (HCB), said Prof Tania Sourdin from the University of Newcastle, in the SOCAP High Conflict Behaviours webinar, in which behaviours, causes and service strategies were discussed.

How does HCB impact your complaint handling and what day-to-day strategies do you need, to work with a HCB disputant? 

Start by following these 3 key steps: 

  1. Have clear process guidelines 
  2. Use communication skills that explain 
  3. Summarise the discussion

Consider upskilling your staff on managing behaviours of complainants with our upcoming workshops on Managing Unreasonable Complainant Conduct in Brisbane on 23 April and Melbourne on 14 May.
