De-escalation and Crisis Intervention
Supporting people who experience mental ill health and or mental distress can be challenging, in this training we explore precursor behaviours that can sometimes lead to violence. We teach participants to not only hold more safety and de-escalate behaviours but we also look at last resort physical non-restrictive practices -all that fit within the legal framework of self-defence.
This workshop is for Professsional Helpers, Support Workers, Outreach Workers, Nurses, Welfare Officers, Mental Health Workers, Carers, and anyone who is working with people who may exhibit challenging behaviours.
This program will enable attendees to:
- Understand the cycle of crisis
- Learn how to identify potential triggers and safeguarding
- Create a safe environment for workers and clients
- Manage challenging behaviours
- Manage extreme emotional distress
- Apply de-escalation techniques in crisis situations
- Apply a personal safety plan
This course includes:
- Up to date industry specific research.
- Take home tools and resources.
- Catering and beverages - with dietary needs catered for.
