Crisis De-Escalation and Conflict Resolution

About the training

Learn Crisis de-escalation/conflict resolution skills to successfully de-escalate behavioral health crisis incidents. This one-hour training is part of the Foundation for Recovery Faith-Based Initiative series. These no cost trainings are available now to your communities.

How can these skills be useful?

Conflict resolution and crisis de-escalation skills are useful to have as individuals, communities, and within our own temples, churches, and masjids, as we engage with a variety of individuals who enter our doors seeking community, safety, and love. We hope that learning these skills will give you the confidence to serve everyone. See you then!

Person-Directed Recovery

Person-centered recovery is directed, as much as possible by the person – including decisions about who should be included in the process.  The planning identifies just a few small, but meaningful, short-term changes that the individual can focus on helping to reduce some of the barriers or challenges moving forward.  Person centered care should be central to all recovery frameworks.
