Crisis communication and verbal de-escalation skills are essential in helping Correctional Officers successfully diffuse hostile or difficult situations inside the confines of a correctional facility. Correctional officers have minimal tools to control situations, and communication skills are one of the most important.
Attendees will leave this class with a practical set of skills that they can use to:
· De-escalate or stabilize angry/violent behavior
· Establish meaningful dialog with the threat
· Engage in emotional control tactics
· Establish a therapeutic rapport
· Gather meaningful intelligence from the threat/victims
· Tips working with inmates dealing with mental health crisis
