    De-escalation Techniques - 03/05/2017 - BUNBURY

    Community Event, Workshop, Training Course, WAAMH Event

    This course is designed to assist service providers and front-line staff to respond appropriately to threatening, violent, aggressive and other unexpected or inappropriate behaviour.

    Most people who deal with the general public will on occasion face a difficult or potentially dangerous situation. How we respond to a potential crisis can make the difference between smooth resolution and an emergency situation.

    Providing practical response strategies, this course looks at the four step SAFE de-escalation process: Situation—Assess—Facilitate—Evaluate.

     Content covered includes:

    •  Establish rapport
    •  Recognise danger
    •  Empathetic communication
    •  Preventative techniques
    •  Identify and assess behaviours
    •  Relevance of mental health + other conditions
    •  Manage emotions and instinct
    •  Verbal and nonverbal defusing techniques
    •  Ensure personal safety
