C3 De-escalation® targets a breakdown in the brain. Stress or anger– i.e., “losing it”– causes a physical to short-circuit. Brain sections that handle self-restraint, reason and consequences essentially disconnect. This can result in outbursts of aggression, agitation, or reckless behavior. We’ve all experienced this to some degree. However, someone with mental health or addiction issues is more vulnerable, often with worse consequences. C3 provides three groups of techniques to help the brain calm down and stabilize:
Calm: Stress chemicals trigger the short-circuit. C3 provides ways to lower the stress chemicals, giving circuits a chance to re-connect.
Circuit: Since parts of the brain disconnect, C3 provides ways to cue disconnected parts and jump-start the circuit.
Connection: Typically, there’s a “lead time” before the actual explosion. If we notice the signs and intervene wisely, we can stop the explosion before it happens. C3 shows how to connect the dots: spot the pattern, head off the eruption.
