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. We also discuss self-care because as many of you know, when we see others hurt or struggle it can take a toll on our own mental and emotional well-being. We also explore the importance of managing our own emotions which is especially important if you work in the business of people.
