Keep Calm and Carry On! De-Escalating Ourselves and those we serve!
This training, although powerful as a stand-alone, is better as a Part 2 to Becoming Trauma Informed. This class helps us create trauma responsive and crisis related strategies. Understanding the story behind the escalation often helps to diffuse the situation allowing the client, and provider, to both experience preserved wellness. This training will help us understand secondary, or vicarious trauma, develop healthy and professional de-escalation techniques and strategies. It will also educate us on necessary steps to take when creating safety plans when necessary to address potential suicide, homicide, or mental health crises.
