    De-escalation Skills - 20/06/2019 - PERTH

    Training Course

    This course is designed to equip staff with the skills and knowledge to effectively respond to people displaying distressed, exaggerated or unexpected behaviour.

    Target Audience:  Front line staff working alongside the public

    From time-to-time, staff working alongside the public may encounter people in a distressed condition or engaging in exaggerated or unexpected behaviour.  Learning how to respond appropriately can diffuse a potentially stressful or escalated situation, ensuring a smooth resolution for all parties involved.

    Content covered includes:

    • Definitions of escalated behaviour
    • Common triggers
    • Trauma and the anger iceberg
    • Signs of escalation
    • The escalation curve
    • The physiology of escalation
    • SAFE de-escalation
      • Situational analysis
      • Assessing danger
      • Facilitating de-escalation through personal preparation, verbal and non-verbal techniques
      • Evaluating incidents.

    One of WAAMH's most popular courses with community service organisations; local councils; government departments; hospitals; health services; and schools, this course blends theory and practice to prepare participants to carry out de-escalation across a variety of work environments.
