De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations 

For music therapists who work in an environment where there is potential for violence, it is important to develop the skills needed to defuse dangerous situations. This workshop will be facilitated by the the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute (CTRI).  It is designed to teach people to de-escalate potentially violent situations through assertiveness and interpersonal communication. The training will explore how anger and violence interplay, including opportunities for self-assessment of personal communication styles. Participants will develop a clear understanding of how to assess the potential for violence and respond with a diverse set of interpersonal tools and strategies designed to defuse potentially violent situations.

When: Friday, February 28, 2020 (7:00PM - 10:00PM)

Where: Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre (355 Cooper Street, Ottawa, ON K2P 0G8), Room 14
