Domestic Violence and Trauma: De-escalation Techniques

Tuesday, July 12, 2022

12:30 p.m.- 3:30 p.m. (EST)

Traumatic experiences impact how survivors navigate stress and emotions for long after the abuse ends. Although this knowledge can help normalize traumatic stress responses, it can still be difficult as an advocate to navigate the responses of survivors and our physiological reactions in the moment.
In this virtual training, advocates will learn de-escalation strategies for effectively responding to survivors of domestic violence who are experiencing emotional distress. This training uses a trauma-informed lens to view distress and de-escalation and provides participants with practical knowledge and skills for de-escalation that they can apply in their work with survivors.
