De-escalation with Children Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Caledonia and Southern Essex Starting Points Network
Instructor: Scott Noyes

*** THIS TRAINING IS FULL *** De-escalation is the reduction in the intensity of a conflict. Unlike escalation, which often occurs rapidly and unintentionally, de-escalation tends to be slow and only happens intentionally through much effort. A variety of approaches are possible: the gradual reciprocal reduction in tension approach (GRIT), cooling-off periods, changing communication strategies and patterns, and others. This presentation will introduce ways to bring a child back to a reasonable state. Learning to control yourself, your physical stance, and how to have a helpful discussion, are topics this workshop includes. This information puts adults working with escalated behaviors in supportive positions.
