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.
