Behavioral health, mental health, medical and allied health care professionals are likely to encounter situations in their careers in which a de-escalation intervention is the most appropriate, ethical, and therapeutic response to provide a client who is in an agitated state. This course is an introductory course on what de-escalation is, how to identify situations where de-escalation interventions are appropriate, and the de-escalation steps and techniques that one can apply in general behavioral and mental health settings. This course is not for those professionals working in population specific settings where de-escalation is required on a regular basis to maintain milieu harmony (e.g., residential setting for severe behavioral and/or mental health disorders),where more advanced trainings specialized for the specific population is appropriate.
