Social Worker Safety Tactics: Identifying, De-Escalating and Avoiding Violent Situations - AM Session

This half-day training will help participants detect and prevent potentially violent situations when working with children and families, as well as de-escalate violent situations as necessary. Specific case studies and videos are used to help participants examine the thought process of the violent person and will teach participants to successfully detect pre-attack indicators, read body language and link their mindset to their performance. De–escalation techniques will be introduced to assist participants with detecting and de–escalating an agitated individual. Additionally, participants will learn the danger signs and when to disengage and leave a violent situation.
