For Parents & Professionals

Skillful Engagement w/Crises

This training focuses on helping  participants better engage with volatile behaviors. It shifts the focus from de-escalation of these behaviors (which is always about "us" de-escalating "them") to helping us hear, be with, and understand the children before we "do" anything. The intention of this training is to "slow the whole thing down." There is so much fear in reactivity which only perpetuates more fear. This training is about responding to them; using crises as "teachable moments" designed to strengthen the bond to children with fragile attachments.

Training Objectives

Helping parents and professionals:

  • Recognize importance of words in forging an alliance or creating a war
  • Become internally anchored during a crisis situation
  • Find empathic resolutions, respectful disagreements and clear boundaries
  • Use the crisis as a “teachable moment” to strengthen the bond with children
