Responding to Crisis at Work
During this session, we will learn a simple three-step model that can be used to respond effectively to distress. This webinar is complementary to a previous session De-Escalation Strategies for Healthcare.
Please note that this session is intended to provide a brief overview of these tools and is not intended to be a substitute for full crisis de-escalation training. More in-depth de-escalation training can be accessed through the Crisis Prevention Institute.
