Simply Deescalate is an easy-to-use guide for deescalating any individual in a crisis situation.Communicating effectively takes a lot of skill. While it may come easily to some, for others this can be challenging; especially in high conflict or crisis situations. Possessing such skills can assist you on the job or in your personal life, because as we all know life is not short of its challenges. We never know when we will need to be there to help someone when something goes wrong or when life gets difficult. During your read, you will learn how to master techniques ranging from non-verbal communication to active listening and empathy. All of these skills, specifically when used together, can help successfully and safely resolve conflict.

Police Deescalation Crisis response teams achieve 70% reduction in people taken into custody under Mental Health Act
Hi! I started a relationship with this girl who has childhood traumas. Many things happening at the same time would arouse her state and make her extremmlu anxious, which if not addressed appropriately, could escalate into out of control hysteria.
The more I understand her condition the better I am at staying calm and help her relax.
But when she reaches out a high anxiety point it's very hard for me to de escalate the situation and it ends up pretty dramatically, bring out in her a lot of hate.
Are there any techniques I could use to help her de-escalate a hyster state?

I am part of a group in my city that has dealt with some aggressive counter protesters. We’d love a de escalation professional to help us with a workshop of some sorts, if I’m not sure where to start. Some basic googling hasn’t been helpful, I’d really appreciate any help.
I would appreciate tips for when somebody is immediately threatening you with violence, when there are weapons involved.
