ObjectiveThis course provides valuable insight into psychological and emotional processes that affect communication and keeping situation from escalating.
DescriptionThis presentation provides verbal and kinesic tools to accomplish the following safely and effectively: maintain composure, communicate well, establish rapport and cooperation, and gain compliance with students, parents, members of the public, peers, and administration. Additionally, the course provides important insight into understanding crisis, predictability, bias, and body language. This presentation educates attendees on the fundamental concepts of communication and de-escalation, methods to appeal to basic emotion and psychological needs, overcoming bias, and an easy to employ, highly effective, universal communication system (The Wolfson Formula). 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 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 presentation has been given to 1,000s of professionals and is quickly becoming the gold standard in understanding and employing communication and de-escalation skills. Attendees will leave with a pocket-sized quick reference guide and access to a small poster-style reference.

ObjectiveThis presentation will provide audience member with a number of practical tools to identify and eliminate stress from their lives.
DescriptionThere are different types of stressors working for and against us. "Stress Management" introduces stress in surprising ways to the audience and defines source stresses. Then, using sound psychological concepts, it provides the audience with a model to gauge one's own current life stress level. After that, the audience learns what happens to the body during acute and chronic stress events. After providing an in-depth look at the physiological results of stress, seven proven methods of controlling and reducing stress; both acute and chronic are shared. Also, a psychological model of how stress affects our cognitive processes and behavior is demonstrated. "Stress Management" provides knowledge, and like all other CBL Training and Consulting classes, provides practical tools to overcome the problem. John Wilson provides personal insight into his own battles with professional and personal stress related to 30 years of experience in the military and law enforcement.
