Managing Threatening Confrontations

Managing Threatening Confrontations is designed to assist you in learning how to effectively support clients and others who could experience the full range of behavioral escalation. These moments often appear chaotic-when to talk, when to step back, who to call for back up, and "when to duck." This seminar is designed to put order to the chaos. Stages of escalation are described and each stage is paired with a positive action plan for caregivers as well as teams. The content places strong emphasis on proactive supports. The principles are taught in a straightforward manner so as to provide a framework for conceptualizing behavior escalation that can readily translate into positive plans of action. The learning is brought to life using a video of a dramatic, real life enactment of threatening confrontations by professional actors.

His career began in 1975 at the Adler Mental Health Center, a short term-intensive treatment program for children with emotional and developmental challenges. Over a period of 7 years, he provided direct care, clinical supervision and eventually became program director. While at Adler, Mr. White completed graduate studies in Educational Psychology with the University of Illinois in Champaign. In 1980, he began a position as Behavioral Treatment Director to a community-based residential program for 96 adults with disabilities. From 1986 to 2017, Mr. White was Academic Staff at the UW-Madison's Waisman Center. He developed a program called "Community TIES" which provides outreach behavioral consultation to persons with disabilities living in the community. As part of this work, he developed a series of seminars on positive behavioral supports that have been offered extensively across Wisconsin. In 2003, he also assumed administrative responsibilities for all activities at the UW-Madison's Waisman Center Outreach Program location, which encompassed a range of innovative programs that support community inclusion for persons with disabilities. Mr. White retired in 2016 Emeritus from University of Wisconsin.
