This training focuses on many factors related to providing assistance and utilizing essential skills in helping individuals de-escalate from a crisis situation. All human beings have at one time or another made a choice while thinking with their emotions. When these emotions are negative emotions, this may often lead to a crisis situation. Defining a crisis situation and being able to recognize a crisis before, during, and after will be an imperative skill for persons working in the human services field. The facilitator will utilize a perspective closely related to behavioral supports within the field of working with individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities, as well as mental health issues (dual diagnosis). The training will hone in on antecedent, behavioral, and consequence strategies, on potential causes of crises, and much more.
