Calming the Fire:   Fundamental Principles of De-escalation and Understanding curriculum is designed to identify   several basic behavioral types and what manner of communication works best   with each one. By studying these qualities we can identify not only what   works with those we encounter, but also how we best work with them and what   areas we may need to work on to make us better communicators and   de-escalators to potentially volatile situations. Each Officer is the   starting point to a successful de-escalation. Know where you starting line is!

At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the basic behavior styles   expressed in all people and how to apply understanding to them. .
  • Identify positive and negative body language and learn to apply them to accomplish successful de-escalation practices. .
  • Explore how to look beyond the problematic actions   of others to identify the real issue. .
  • De-Escalate the Person, Not the Problem.
