The De-Escalation Course thoroughly dissects the complex concept of “de-escalation” and the many elements in determining its feasibility or effectiveness in a variety of encounter types, including high-pressure and rapidly unfolding encounters.
The curriculum is based on unbiased scientific realities. The training provides essential insights for law enforcement personnel at all levels and is designed to be the basis for de-escalation training for police.
Participants in the course will learn concepts and methods that support de-escalation efforts when personal connections can be made between officers and subjects. These attendees will be given knowledge regarding ways to help people in a state of mental health crisis, or whose perception of reality is altered. Law enforcement officers using the lessons from this course will be able to better manage human beings with better skills around establishing contact, building rapport and gaining influence to achieve police objectives.
The training will cover situational awareness, mental preparedness, history of active shooter events, psychological and physiological effects of a violent encounter, mistakes we've made in law enforcement responses, active shooter statistics, blood control in a combat setting, downed officer recovery, movement drills, solo room entries, solo building clearing, shoot/no-shoot decision making, directed fire, distractions, and force on force training.
The training will cover awareness, mental preparedness, psychological and physiological effects of a violent encounter, combat breathing, and brief review of the basics (stance, hand placement, falling, evasion, redirection, and striking). It will also cover advanced striking techniques, counters, environmental weapons, garment control, escapes, weapon defense, effective takedowns, handgun disarming, counter ambush, and targeting the human body for maximum stopping effect. The course will also cover edged weapons training to provide the skills and knowledge to successfully carry, deploy, and use an edged weapon in a safe and effective manner for a variety of circumstances to include as a back-up weapon during deadly force scenarios.
