De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations™ Workshops
The NWTRPA and Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute will be offering a De-Escalating Potentially Violent Situations™ workshop instructed by Marnie Stickley, MSW, RSW in Yellowknife and Hay River.
This workshop is designed to teach people to de-escalate potentially violent situations through assertiveness and interpersonal communication. The training will explore how anger and violence interplay, including opportunities for self-assessment of personal communication styles.

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- Understand the role of anger in violent incidents
- Identify their own styles of interaction
