De-escalation Training

De-escalation Training

Have you felt called to engage more fully with our neighbors, but aren’t sure you have the tools to do it effectively? This free training can help. Saints Peter and Paul is hosting a De-escalation training on January 17 from 9am-12:30pm

Sponsored by the highly successful Portland Street Response, this training will help to equip participants in engaging and supporting neighbors and community members experiencing crisis.

There is no cost to the event. Participants should bring their own water bottle, snack (as needed–some refreshments will be provided) paper and pen, and be available to stay for the whole training. 

To register, email with “De-Escalation Training” in the subject line. 

Mother Maria and Rebecca will both be attending. Reach out if you need transportation.


After the training, participants will be able to:

*Identify what factors can lead to crisis

*Identify three unique stages of crisis

*Determine how to approach someone in crisis based on the stage of crisis they observe

*Identify communication strategies that help and hinder de-escalation efforts

*Establish ways to manage personal biases and stress reactions in order to effectively de-escalate
