These are increasingly stressful times. In dealing with delicate or complex situations, you may find your client or even colleague to be agitated, stressed or potentially violent towards themselves or others. This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and best practices to help you assess and understand the situation, and apply techniques to make the person feel listened to, safe and respected so that the episode can be respectfully de-escalated. Based on a trauma- informed and anti-oppressive approach to harm-reduction and inclusion, the course will provide participants with tips and practical techniques to handle interpersonal interactions more effectively, and to bring calm and understanding to these types of situations.
