De-Escalating Toxic Situations

John Weinstein

John Weinstein

Commander, District 3
Northern Virginia Community College Police Department

Words matter!
 
What we say and how we say it can be the difference between a fight and voluntary compliance with police and security direction.  The words we choose, our tone, pitch, and volume, along with our non-verbal cues, can further our customer service goals and, in the case of a toxic situation, defuse it in a positive manner.  In addition to non-verbal cues, differences in age, culture, expectations, and self-perceptions can cause misunderstanding and conflict.  This session will talk about the 3 Es needed to de-escalate toxic situations: explanation, empathy, and ego control, and a technique for gaining compliance in difficult situations.

The Campus Safety National Forum is the perfect opportunity for attendees to network with other professionals and remain proactive in the management of school safety.
