TACT2: Training of Trainers – Verbal Only

April 23 @ 8:30 am - April 24 @ 4:30 pm

Therapeutic Aggression Control Techniques (TACT2) Training for Trainers is a multi-day trauma-sensitive staff training program in behavior management, de-escalation, and crisis intervention. Since its inception in 1997, TACT2 has been used with over 64,000 staff in residential treatment, group homes, alternative schools, shelters, foster care, and many other settings.  Authored by Dr. Steve Parese, this training is available in 2-day (verbal skills) and 4-day (verbal and physical intervention skills) options.

Practical skills. Sound theory. Using dramatic stories, realistic scenarios, and interactive exercises, TACT2 develops practical skills to effectively manage deliberate misbehavior, therapeutically de-escalate emotional crisis, and calmly handle dangerous situations. The program is grounded in research on childhood trauma / Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), adolescent psychology, functional misbehavior, and social learning theory. It has been inspired by such leaders as Drs. William Glasser, Nicholas Long, Carl Rogers, and Sandra Bloom.
