De-escalation Techniques

Faculty & Staff Development

How many times have you had to deal with an angry person? It's easy to get flustered or upset when you're confronted. If you don't know how to respond, you can easily make the situation worse.

This new session will help you to identify the seven phases of escalating behavior and how to use preventative strategies to prevent acceleration.
