I talk to the group about the causes of stress in individuals and how it is communicated verbally and nonverbally. I will speak on the need for verbal and non verbal de-escalation skills and list many simple ways that can be used to prevent violent situations from occurring or escalating. I will cover many safety measures that will help prevent harm to any party during the recognition and de-escalation process.

Brief Program Description

Target Audience-- Teachers, school administrators, School Resource Officers,

Objecctives

1. Understanding the causes of stress in todays youth

2. Understanding how stress is communicated (verbally and non verbally)

3. Understanding how to de-escalate violence situations

4. Using personal safety while de-escalating othersI

Summary

I will teach the attendees the proven successful methods i teach throughout the nation in schools and mental health facilities that help promote a safe learning climate. Once a more safe climate is established, then it is easier for learning to occur.

Students are coming to us in educational facilities with more needs than ever before. They now must be taught some basic social skills that were once taught at home. We must be patient and use our own professionalism and understanding to instruct them how to communicate their feelings without violence and have sympathy for others.

I talk to the audience about the importance of recognizing the early warning signs of stress and anger in individuals and how they can be displayed in many different ways. The way stress is displayed is often dependent upon the stressed individual.

The de-escalation skills that will be taught are easy to understand and preform. When acquired, these skills will help in reducing the stress in the dangerous individuals. These skills will also help keep all parties safe in the environment in which they are used. These skills include verbal and non verbal de-escalation.

I will also instruct on safety skills that will keep all parties safe in a dangerous environment.

Evidence

Many of these techniques are simple techniques used throughout the country and have been for years. I have used them in 32 years as an superintendent of schools, principal, head football coach, and teacher in public education talking to students and parents.
