Crisis Diffusion, 4 hours

STC: 0920-037033

This vital course imparts to facilities staff a volume of information about how to identify and interpret warning signs and triggers. Oppositional Defiant Disordered minors, those who have just returned to the unit after seeing their probation officer, those who have a “bad visit” with their parents, or have come from court, etc., can all be in a mental/emotional state to become assaultive and can potentially harm themselves, other youth, and staff.  Solutions for dealing with these situations – as well as identifying all the stages of a crisis and the most effective manner and time to intervene – are covered in this class.
