Verbal De-escalation in the Classroom
Academic institutions are increasingly populated by a small but significant group of students, including those living with a mental or behavioral illness who engage in disruptive or maladaptive behaviors. This highly interactive workshop provides faculty and staff with the tools to manage, redirect and de-escalate disruptive behaviors using the same proven verbal techniques as crisis interveners and hostage negotiators. Open to all academic professionals, no prior training necessary.
