De-escalation is an important skill to learn and maintain in order to assist the people we serve in regulating emotions when a behavior plan is either absent or does not address a new challenging behavior. This session will review the safety and teach the steps to de-escalate when conflict occurs. We will also define and discuss the importance of building rapport and maintaining positive interactions throughout our work. The better relationships we have with the people we serve, the better quality of life we can provide for them!

1. Discuss safety in de-escalation
