For those who work in an environment where there is potential for violence, it is important to develop the skills needed to defuse dangerous situations. This one-day workshop is designed to teach people to de-escalate potentially violent situations through assertiveness and interpersonal communication.  The training will explore how anger and violence interplay, including opportunities for self-assessment of personal communication styles. Participants will develop a clear understanding of how to assess the potential for violence and respond with a diverse set of interpersonal tools and strategies designed to defuse potentially violent situations.
