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.
