WHEN TO TALK, WHEN TO LISTEN, WHEN TO DUCK
For frontline staff in the fields of developmental disabilities and mental illness who deal with potentially explosive situations. Realistic scenes follow the five-stage process and show both unskilled and effective staff responses.
This dynamic video presents Paul White's five-stage framework for managing escalating behaviors, using situational re-enactments that include actors with developmental disabilities.
Participants learn to recognize the stages (adaptive, tension, emotional distress, physical distress and recovery) and respond appropriately. Helps teachers and classroom assistants understand and manage escalating behaviors. Great for staff in-service training.
