Non-verbal communication: I’m communicating – are you listening?

Published On: 4 June 2024

In this webinar with Gary Nicholls, Principal Team Teach trainer, we discuss non-verbal communication and the often subtle signs that can help us with dynamic risk assessment, enabling us to reduce the likelihood of an individual ending up in crisis.

We consider:

how individuals can communicate their emotions through body language, helping us to recognise how they may be feeling

ways we can spot the early signs of distress before an individual is in crisis, allowing us to decide how best to support them

why early de-escalation can reduce risk and the use of restrictive practices for everyone.
