Realistic De-Escalation – Train-the-Trainer

The goal of this program is to teach law enforcement professionals the necessary skills to accurately
assess potentially violent confrontations and, when feasible, defuse them with easy-to-grasp, successfully applied tactics to avoid use-of-force crises.

This course also provides crucial information to allow successful students to learn the material needed to successfully teach these concepts to their fellow officers. The ultimate goal of this Force Science course is to enhance de-escalation efforts with the help of science – both in the field and in training – while also critically applying an understanding of human factors and performance research to most effectively address challenging situations with individuals in the midst of a crisis.

This course includes 14 hours of lecture and presentations and 2 hours of lab. In the lab, students
participate in a teaching exercise and work through various de-escalation scenarios while being observed
by other students and coached by instructors.
