Third-Party Event

This 24-hour course is designed specifically for jail and supervision staff. It is essentially the de-escalation training course but tailored specifically for correctional workers. This model is based on the curriculum for our largest client, the Federal Bureau of Prisons. On day one, participants learn advanced verbal communication skills and the various ways to respond to a person experiencing a behavioral crisis. Participants then learn the dynamics of serious mental illness and the complex social problem of suicide on day two. On day three, we provide a screening of the Emmy award-winning HBO documentary “Ernie and Joe: Crisis Cops.” Participants then learn to look at their own mental wellness as a way to guide their responses in all human interactions. Day three is completed when participants pass a practical application assessment. Throughout the week, scenario-based training is utilized to develop the skills of the participants.
