Preparation and awareness are the two most important components of maintaining one’s safety. Knowing how to assess a situation, plan ahead when an interaction has the potential for danger and paying attention once we are in a situation assists us in staying safe. While no training program can guarantee a risk free world, this half day program will provide a wide range of options available to staff who may encounter angry people or situations with potential risk. The program will address the need for boundaries, both physical and psychological; provide practical de-escalation techniques; address what to pay attention to when in a crisis situation; essential skills that assist us when interacting with angry or hostile people; understand and build skill in disengaging; and tips for staying safe in the office and in the field.
This is not a self-defense course. This program will address safety both in the office and out in the field.
