Product Description
This guide focuses on de-escalation strategies and proactive solutions for working with kids and young adults with challenging behaviors. Teachers, counselors, administrators, and other adults can use de-escalation techniques when working with kids and young adults. Kids and young adults who become agitated, upset, and aggressive more frequently need adults who understand and utilize de-escalation strategies in times of stress. These strategies kids regain control of their own emotions so they can effectively problem-solve any challenges that arise.

This resource is the ideal training kit to help educators, counselors, administrators, and paraprofessionals work with kids and young adults with challenging behaviors. It provides background knowledge on disabilities and mental health needs that are commonly in need of de-escalation strategies, including Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, and Trauma.

Resources consist of detailed training guides, practice scenarios, reference lists, and a quick pocket-guide to help defuse and de-escalate situations on the fly.

Why Learn De-escalation Strategies
Kids and young adults who become emotionally overwhelmed or irritated in a situation may begin to express their emotions in aggressive or violent ways. Some examples of these behaviors might include aggressive posturing, yelling, throwing items, swearing, and making threats. Quite often, without training, these situations become a power struggle between the young adult and the teacher. These power struggles only make the situation worse, though.

The best way to handle these types of behaviors is to de-escalate the situation as soon as possible. De-escalation focuses on helping the student return their emotions back to a normal level. It is critical that the student is calm for a period of time before behavior and expectations are discussed again.
