Healing (Trauma) Informed De-Escalation: Approaches to Difficult Situations in HIV Care

Originally recorded on May 19, 2023

Presenter:Melinda Marasch, LCSW

Program Description:
High rates of attacks against healthcare workers over the last 10 years prompted The Joint Commission to revise their workplace violence prevention standards in 2022. De-escalation training is critical to support the health and safety of both patients and staff during escalating situations. Meanwhile, trauma-informed practices can increase patient engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as improve provider and staff well-being. Trauma-informed de-escalation techniques provide the best of both worlds. During this training, participants will learn about healing-informed care – a healing-centered approach to trauma-informed care – before exploring effective de-escalation approaches and practicing applying these during the interactive session. Participants will also develop a de-escalation integration plan to implement in their day-to-day work.

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize Healing (Trauma) Informed Care (HIC)
  • Explain at least 3 approaches that are often effective for de-escalation
  • Apply effective de-escalation approaches to HIV care
  • Develop a plan to integrate de-escalation approaches learned
