Crisis prevention doesn't begin with de-escalation.

The True Crisis Prevention model begins with identifying and solving the problems that are causing kids to become escalated in the first place. It continues with “expectation management”…making sure that you’re placing expectations on kids that they can actually meet.

So if you’ve been trained to believe that de-escalation is the key to crisis prevention, don’t feel bad…it’s just that de-escalation is actually a crisis management strategy. If you’re de-escalating a lot, you’re probably restraining and secluding a lot too.

To truly prevent crises, you’ll need new lenses, new timing, and new practices.

The free resources on this website can help you get started. When you’re ready to take the next step, contact True Crisis Intervention so we can discuss how to help you dramatically reduce or completely eliminate restraint and seclusion through implementation of Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS)…without compromising anyone’s safety.

We’re eager to talk with you!
