During real-world operations, the mission of the CT HCC is to help identify resources at the state and sub-state levels, and to collect, analyze, validate, and disseminate essential elements of information (EEIs) to partner agencies.

The CT HCC is offering a series of de-escalation training sessions for coalition members and partners through AVADE Workplace Violence Prevention. The AVADE De-Escalation Training Program is designed to educate, prevent, and mitigate the risk of escalation, aggression, and violence to individuals in the workplace. Participants will learn how to effectively create, develop, and enhance their communication skills and de-escalation skills with habits and actions. Participants will learn strategies and techniques to avoid, prevent, and mitigate violence in the workplace.

The coalition is offering five sessions of de-escalation training, as well as one train-the-trainer session to ensure that de-escalation education can continue in the State of Connecticut. One course will be offered each day from June 24-29, with the train-the-trainer session occuring on June 29.
