Violence Threat Assessment – Planning and Response
April 24, 1:00 pm Central Time
Knowing how to respond to a threat is a tremendous challenge. After a violent incident, it is not uncommon to find that many different people were aware of clues that an attack was being planned. Yet, without the proper mechanism to gather information and assess the situation, prevention is nearly impossible. This webinar provides a communication and decision-making model to help businesses, schools, organizations and communities become proactive in their management of threats. Strategies to help you identify, assess, and manage individuals who make threats will be explored.
Anxiety – Practical Intervention Strategies
May 5, 1:00 pm Central Time
While every person experiences anxiety, it is estimated that over a quarter of the population will experience anxiety at levels that cause distress in their lives. When high levels of distress are experienced, it is important for people to be able to access strategies to reduce anxiety. This webinar presents practical and accessible strategies to assist both adults and children in reducing anxiety.
Self-Injury Behaviour in Youth – Strategies for Helping
May 21, 1:00 pm Central Time
Helping professionals are increasingly encountering young people who are engaging in self-injurious behaviour. This webinar will focus on practical strategies for working with youth struggling with this complex issue. Topics covered include assessment, emotion regulation, replacement skills training and contagion prevention. Participants will gain insight regarding self-injury behaviour in youth along with tools for effective intervention.
De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations™
June 5, 1:00 pm Central Time
For those who work in an environment where there is potential for violence, it is important to develop the skills needed to defuse dangerous situations. This webinar will focus on how to de-escalate potentially violent situations through assertiveness and interpersonal communication. Participants will gain a clear understanding of how to assess the potential for violence and respond with a diverse set of interpersonal tools and strategies designed to defuse potentially violent situations.
Critical Incident Group Debriefing
June 17, 1:00 pm Central Time
Critical Incident Group Debriefing (CIGD) is a short-term group intervention process that focuses on an immediate crisis. CIGD is one method that can be utilized to lessen the likelihood of participants experiencing symptoms of trauma and stress after a critical incident. This group debriefing process provides a place for participants to talk and share experiences, and for the facilitator to teach and provide information about the impact of critical incidents. Participants of this webinar will not only learn about facilitating a group debriefing, but also have a better understanding of when a group debriefing might not be appropriate.
