Connection and De-Escalation Training for police is scheduled as a One Day seminar on February 13, 2019, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, at the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science, University of New Haven, room 103.
Connection – De-Escalation Training is instructed by retired Lieutenant Ray Hassett who has been a practitioner and trainer in crisis intervention, hostage negotiation, and now, Connection – De-Escalation. The first “connection” that a police officer or responsible party makes with a person in crisis can make the difference on how the situation is resolved. Often a peaceful resolution can be made when an officer employs the principles of Connection – De-Escalation training. During this One Day training seminar the principles of slowing down a chaotic event, managing emotions to change behavior, and active listening skills will be taught through interaction and role playing scenarios. This training is imperative to learn in order to manage emotionally disturbed individuals, suicidal individuals, and people in crisis. It is a matter of life and death.
