What Will You Learn in De-Escalation Techniques Training?

This course focuses on de-escalation techniques to mitigate volatile situations. This course will be conducted in a live classroom session with both highly informative discussion and hands-on practical exercises. The course will stress the importance of listening with empathy, body language and tone of voice, and application of use of force options, including less than lethal. After completion of this course, students will be prepared to de-escalate confrontations they may face in the real world.

1) Communication as the key

Communication is the most important part of any de-escalation situation. Students will learn how to communicate calmly and effectively in order to handle situations before they become volatile.

2) Encountering conflict

In any potentially-volatile situation, conflict may arise. This course teaches students what kinds of conflicts may arise, as well as techniques to handle a variety of different kinds of conflict.

3) Use of force continuum

A use of force continuum is a standard that provides law enforcement officers and civilians with guidelines as to how much force may be used against a resisting subject in a given situation. This de-escalation techniques course will teach participants how to use force in a conflict appropriately and justly, while focusing on less than lethal options.

4) Crisis intervention

A crisis intervention may be necessary to aid a person in mental, physical, or emotional distress. Learn to intervene safely and properly in order to de-escalate the situation and minimize current and future harm to the person in need.

5) Decision making in a volatile environment

Making decisions in a fast-paced and volatile environment can be extremely difficult. K Street’s focus on case studies and scenarios will help students learn to make smart decisions quickly, even in high-stress situations.

6) FUD factor: Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt

FUD stands for fear, uncertainty, and doubt, and describes an appeal to fear or doubt over reason. This course teaches students how to respond to the FUD factor in a smart, logical manner.
