C3 De-escalation is provided in TWO sessions. Each session is THREE hours. Participants MUST complete a Session I and a Session 2 in order to complete the training. Participants can register for sessions at any of the offered locations.
C3 De-escalation was developed in the Southside of Chicago by Andra Madea, where she was able to identify patterns of behaviors in escalated clients. Through research at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago, she was able to link brain research on aggression to many of the same behaviors that she was observing in the community and was able to work with the ACT team in Chicago. Based on research from Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Amy Arnstein, C3 De-escalation was developed as a tool to improve safety, decrease stress, and lower injury and arrest rates while empowering the client to develop better coping skills. This 6-hour course will allow you to use those same strategies and interventions to de-escalate others safely and confidently.
