Verbal De-Escalation: The Prevention-Intervention-Postvention Cycle

When students experience behavioral and/or social-emotional difficulties, they may exhibit behaviors that require careful intervention by professionals in the educational setting. As a result, instruction is disrupted, and student outcomes are minimized. This training is designed to provide participants with information and resources needed to quickly and effectively intervene before, during and after a behavioral escalation.


  • Proficiently identify the function of a behavior in order to meaningfully identify and apply effective interventions.
  • Develop a toolkit of positive, student-focused preventative techniques to avoid crisis before it has an opportunity to manifest.
  • Develop a toolkit of behavioral intervention tools to verbally de-escalate a crisis once it has begun and return to the instructional plan as quickly as possible.

LCAP Priority Areas:

Student Engagement: Supporting student engagement, including whether students attend school or are chronically absent.,

School Climate: Highlighting school climate and connectedness through a variety of factors, such as suspension and expulsion rates and other locally identified means.,

Any of our Regional Trainings can be given at your school site. These Site-Based Trainings are best suited for larger groups, and locations where a version of this training is not already scheduled.

Site-Based Trainings generally require a minimum of 10 participants at your school site. Should you wish to have a Site-Based Training, but do not have enough participants, the SELPA may be able to pair your LEA’s needs with other local SELPA Partners in order to offer the training at your site.
