The New De-escalation Skills (Self-Study)



Do you remember how you used to really care to take your time to understand what was going on with your clients instead of simply jumping to conclusions? Do you remember how you used to remember to always meet your clients where they are at, see them for who they can be, and interact with them with an unconditional positive regard?

What happened that all of that changed? Did you get wiser? Or did you actually get burned out? Did you suddenly become “cynical”? “Jaded,”? and buy into the false narrative that, “those people are never going to get better”?

Here’s your chance to turn all this disappointment around and reconnect with your true passion to truly make a difference, because this is the way to life satisfaction for you and to recovery-oriented care for your clients. Join us now for the New De-escalation Skills.

Here's what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

"I'm thankful for this Institute, because I feel very valued, and that I have a invaluable opportunity to receive ongoing education and training from expert professionals, that I would otherwise really not be able to afford or access." - Rachel, LMSW

"The facilitator wa great, and made the de-escalation process seem manageable and within grasp. I am eager to try some of the techniques." - Leeat, LMSW

"Well, what stood out for me today the most is the enthusiasm with which the facilitator engages the audience and the enthusiasm she has for the subject matter. Although I have prior knowledge of the skills of de-escalation, having worked in group homes and inpatient adolescent and adult settings for years, the do's and don'ts regarding de-escalation skills presented in today's seminar were more comprehensive than what I learned in the past." - Mary, LCSW-R
