More Info

This will be a conflict de-escalation training workshop for church security and church personnel.  Thank you Venture church in Howell, MI for hosting the event! A year ago we had a transgender incident with a male in the female bathroom at my church.  Have you and your team considered such an incident and how you will handle it?  Have you considered how to handle an ugly divorce/custody issue in the nursery area? Well we can talk all about it but here is a chance to actually go through a simulated situation and gain that much more confidence in dealing with stressful encounters with people.  Talking about how you are going to handle a situation is VERY different to how you actually handle a situation if you do not have training and practice.  You can read all about how to hit a baseball, watch all the how to videos, learn about keeping your eye on the ball and having a smooth swing and body form... But then you are going to have to step up to the plate and see for yourself what a baseball looks like coming at you at 50 mph or faster, and try to figure out the timing of your swing for yourself. This training workshop will be about 3 hours long.  After an hour of lecture presentation there will be 4 scenarios everyone will go through, all based on incidences that actually either happened at my church or happened at another church.  If you have an incident that you would like a "do over" with, please feel free to tell me about it and I may just use it!  My role players are former or current police officers, and between us all we are sharing just under 100 year of experience in successfully dealing with potentially volatile persons. In addition to putting on workshops around Michigan we also go and do training at your location, with your personnel.  Please do not hestitate to ask me for details! Looking forward to training with you at Venture church on Saturday, Oct 14th!  We're going to have a blast!  Here is a video from a recent workshop   www.gentle-response.com
