De-escalation Training

The training will begin with in-the-moment regulation activities an adult can use to stay calm when a student escalates as well as long term strategies an adult can use to help increase the odds of staying calm when a student escalates.  Additionally, we will explore the phases of escalation and how any adult can learn to intervene to de-escalate a student.  This training is based off the research and work of Geoff Colvin and Terry Scott who wrote the book Managing the Cycle of Acting-Out Behavior in the Classroom, Second Edition

Participants can expect to leave being able to:
  • Understand the importance and rationale behind remaining calm when faced with challenging behaviors
  • Identify one in-the-moment regulation (calming) strategy you can use when a student escalates
  • Identify one long term strategy you can use to help increase the odds you will stay calm when a student escalates
  • Become familiar with the seven phases of acting out behavior
  • Know one strategy to use to address each phase of acting out behavior
Who Should Participate:

This training is for individual educators who want to learn strategies to stay calm when a student escalates and for anyone who wants to have strategies to de-escalate a student.
