Many children in care have experienced trauma, which can impact how they react to circumstances and events that remind them of the abuse, and cause them to escalate. In the past, caregivers were not trained on how to respond to and regulate children’s emotions and behaviors during these times. However, today, there are many techniques caregivers can use to help children de-escalate. This course explores escalation, its causes, and strategies for de-escalation. Trauma-Informed Parenting is a prerequisite for this course.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • describe escalation and de-escalation
  • describe the “thinking brain” and the “survival brain”
  • understand how trauma impacts children’s brains
  • identify phases of escalation
  • know how to have restorative conversations
  • know how to develop a plan to de-escalate behavior and how to use crisis intervention and management
