The Acting-Out Person Back to Course Index

If you do not impose and enforce reasonable limits, the individual simply refuses to follow your directives, or you arrive too late during the crisis development process, you may encounter the third level of behavior-the Acting-Out Person.

This behavior level is defined as total loss of control which usually involves physical aggression. The individual is no longer able to control himself and verbal aggression turns into physical assault. The person may assault staff, other people, or even attempt to harm himself.
