Our Next Sessions
LIVE WEBINAR: Innovations in Research on De-escalation for Police
with Dr. Yasmeen Krameddine, Expert in De-escalation and Mental Health Training
April 16, 2020 | 12:00pm EST
Since 2011, Dr. Krameddine has been advising front-line organizations in de-escalation.
Thousands of dollars are spent every year on police training that is commonly built on opinions instead of scientifically evaluated training that is proven to work. Excitingly organizations have been recognizing the need for evidence-based training and have been moving towards best practices.
De-escalation training focuses on decreasing physical force, weapon force, injuries, and fatalities, so that both police and those they interact with can stay safe. This presentation will introduce the current research behind de-escalation training effectiveness and evidence-informed strategies needed for successful outcomes.
