Specialized Training

The confidence that comes from solid training and having your whole team on the same page boosts morale, reduces liability, and leads to effective outcomes.  We have a unique and innovative way to integrate a variety of diverse topics into one coherent, easy to use model.  Here are our basic trainings:

1. De-escalation.  We approach the tough topic of how to effectively reduce anxiety and agitation in a way that is compassionate and reliable.  We address the sources of escalation, safety issues, effective de-escalation strategies, and team concepts aimed at preventing aggression and violence. 

2. Threat recognition and reporting.  A critical part of violence prevention is intervention.  In so many headline-grabbing cases, there were missed opportunities along the way to make a positive difference in the outcome.  We help our clients create an organization-wide approach to seeing warnings early and getting the right information to the right people.

3. Active violence response.  Sometimes situations accelerate too fast or emerge from unknown sources and result in physical violence.  This can range from assault to violence committed with firearms or knives.  We provide classroom and physical training on these topics that is non-threatening, easy to learn, and effective.
