Did you know that in most cases, you can prevent escalation of disruptive behavior with your own nonverbal behaviors? The ability to organize your thinking and calmly respond are effective de-escalation techniques that can help you avoid a potential crisis.

In the preview of CPI's Preventive Techniques II DVD below, you'll watch realistic scenarios demonstrating how your own nonverbal behaviors can help you safely manage dangerous situations.

Learn how personal space, body language, and listening skills can help effectively de-escalate the disruptive behavior of those in your care.

For organizations considering the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program, The Preventive Techniques II DVD introduces Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training core concepts, as well as examples of selected course content. It also provides your staff with a solid framework for formal training.
