De-escalate Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime

Unplug the Power Struggle
with Principle-Based De-escalation

Imagine dealing with any situation. Learn 5 surprises and 3 Guiding Principles, that will allow you to remain in control at all times, support anyone, anywhere, with any issue, and avoid the wrong response which can make the situation worse.

Is it really possible to de-escalate anyone, anywhere, anytime? Yes! Imagine yourself dealing with any scenario with anyone, anywhere, with confidence and long-term foresight. This is possible with a Principle-Based approach to de-escalation.

While no single technique will work on every person, there is a small set of principles that do apply to everyone. These principles are universal so they apply to any age person, any level of ability or disability, and any setting.

If you are new to de-escalation, this presentation will introduce the guiding principles that form the basis for today's professional behavioral interventions and emergency response protocols. If you are experienced, this presentation will serve as a valuable affirmation or even help you fuse together varied, previous trainings into a consistent and potent practice.
