The Art of De-escalation: Strategies for Preventing and Resolving Conflict for Behavioral Health Professionals
This webinar is free and open to the public.
“Escalation is the key consequence of refusing to problem-solve or negotiate, and it demands our attention.” ― Sarah Schulman
The art of de-escalation requires an accurate assessment of where a client is in the escalation cycle. It also requires knowledge of how to maintain calm communication with a distressed client while working toward resolution. In this webinar, participants will learn the four stages of escalation, discover how to recognize early indicators of escalating behavior and when to step in. Evidence-based techniques for effectively managing clients on the verge of escalation will be discussed.
In this webinar you will:
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the four stages of escalation
- Develop an intervention plan at critical times within the escalation cycle
- Learn effective strategies to prevent future escalations
- Identify the essential steps for achieving successful conflict resolution
