Presenter Topic: Trauma Informed Crisis De-escaltation 

Topic Description: Beginning with a brief orientation and exploration of manners by which to promote and enhance trauma informed practices during one of the more contentious portions of the healthcare field: difficult conversations with patients, clients, family members, and community partners. The next portion of the training is designed to explore the neurophysiology of feelings and how they impact patient/client outcomes. It takes a reductionistic approach to our understanding of feelings (i.e. a range of anxiety to aggression) and focuses on the primal drives of feelings and ways to mitigate their impacts throughout the crisis curve.


a) Normalization of trauma as a universal human experience

b) An understanding of how trauma impacts biopsychosocial functioning

c) Reinforcement to the importance of the “how” trauma informed care is implemented and assured

d) A set of skills, rooted in motivational interviewing, to build and sustain client safety and rapport with a practitioner

e) An understanding of anxiety, anger, aggression and their origins

f) Explanation into the impacts of feelings states on behavior and language (non-verbal and verbal), as well as how others acknowledge and respond to these cues

g) A set of standard operating procedures for mitigating potential escalation
