This podcast is part of the series: De-escalating Crisis Situations in School
Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Health Center, Birmingham, AL
As we build upon the first 3 videos targeting how to de-escalate a crisis situation in school in this fourth video we discuss the importance of knowing and giving people what they want when they are in a crisis situation. That doesn't mean what it may sound like it means. We aren't giving in and giving them what they want. We will identify some of the emotional and relational needs of stressed out individuals in a crisis and the importance of our meeting those needs as a de-escalation tool. Additionally, we will target some specific personal characteristics we need to exhibit as we develop ally relationships with students. As ally is someone who is on your side and wants to help you succeed. Students in crisis need to know that we are an ally for them. When they have that assurance they are more likely to have a positive response to our de-escalation interventions.
