De-Escalation November 27, 2019
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.
This training will be held at the Federated Church of East Arlington, 102 Ice Pond Rd, Arlington, VT. A light meal will be served. The cost is $5 per person, unless you are a Bennington County Starting Points member in which case it is free.
