Facilitators: Maggie Helwig and Andrea Budgey

GENRE: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

TYPE: WORKSHOP

In a community which has always been home to many marginalized people, there can be many points of tension, conflict and vulnerability. In this workshop we hope to provide some tools for preventing or de-escalating conflicts, including some ways to support people experiencing mental health crises. While it is not possible to manage all situations, de-escalation skills, combined with knowledge of your community, can greatly reduce the need to involve police or emergency services.
