ONLINE 2018 Recognizing Warning Signs and Strategies Associated With Mental Illness (Detention-Required)

 

 

Lesson Purpose: During this course, we will discuss communication skills and our ability in “gaining compliance without force” (de-escalation) when it is reasonably possible.  This training is a continuation of the 2017 Improving Decision-Making Skills materials.  Additionally, the lesson plan may incorporate some basic physical tactics involved – officer’s approach to the situation, options related to cover/concealment, and “de-escalation from a position of strength.”  Resources available when dealing with the mentally ill will also be discussed.

 

Training Objectives: At the end of this block of instruction, the participant will be able to achieve the following objectives in accordance with the information presented during the instructional period:

          1. Define de-escalation.
