De-escalation is a targeted intervention for children who are likely to escalate low-level incidents into aggressive or dangerous behaviour. It is carried out by a staff member using calm, non-threatening verbal communication, gestures and body language to diffuse, re-direct, or divert a situation during which there is conflict. This training gives experience of using the techniques effectively to reduce the likelihood of incidents escalating into extreme situations involving inappropriate behaviour.
Aims of the training:
* To recognise when children are anxious and in need of support with calming strategies
* To practise techniques and strategies for de-escalation and managing extreme situations
* To be aware of situations in which children benefit from help to de-escalate their behaviour
De-escalation is an effective approach to managing potentially challenging behaviour and the process starts with adults knowing how to spot the first signs of anxiety in children.
