De-Escalation | CWK#012

By November 21, 2018March 10th, 2021No Comments

On the Conversations with KidsPeace podcast, we look at the latest issue of Healing Magazine and its focus on de-escalation of kids in crisis.  We talk with the head of an organization promoting a comprehensive strategy for defusing situations quickly and effectively.  We also discuss what therapists and professionals need to keep in mind when counseling populations at risk for suicide amid a wave of attention to the subject in popular culture.  And a KidsPeace clinician reviews a new book by an Olympic champion about enduring and triumphing over horrific sexual abuse.  Bob Martin hosts.

1:22 – Jamie Pfister, KidsPeace – Addressing Suicide Amid Popular Culture
11:40 – Kim Sanders, Ukeru Systems – Creating an Environment of Comfort vs. Control
23:36 – Eric Sell, KidsPeace – Book Review: Fighting Back by Kayla Harrison, et al.
