It helps professionals maintain their own behavior in stressful and critical situations, gain compliance from difficult people, and achieve cooperation where they might not have been able to do so otherwise without the training. The "Wolfson Formula" has been tested and used effectively for over ten years in many situations, including: public interactions, crisis, victim interviews, simple negotiations, consensual encounters, investigations, and other high stakes situations. This course has been taught to 1,000s of professionals and is quickly becoming a gold standard in not only understanding and employing communication and de-escalation skills, but keeping situations from becoming escalated.
