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.
