Non-Violent Intervention

Our primary focus is a non-violent approach to escalating conditions by teaching management of situations in which violence could occur. This is accomplished through the recognition of potential aggressive behaviors, crisis resolution techniques, verbal and non-verbal de-escalation techniques and, if necessary, simple but effective self-protective measures.

Our extensive real-world experiences have solidified our belief that everyone loses if a conflict escalates to crisis and physical confrontation. Whether it is in a healthcare environment or on the street, the best solutions come from awareness, avoidance, and calming resolution.
