Crisis, De-Escalation and Post-Crisis Phases

Module 8 summarizes the final phases of the escalation cycle: crisis, de-escalation, and post-crisis drain, and provides points to consider during each of these phases.

Teaching During the Baseline Phase

Module 4 focuses on strategies that can be taught while a student is in the baseline phase of the cycle.

Setting Events

Module 3 dives deeper into the content around setting events and how they may impact behavior. Examples of setting events, including trauma and implicit biases, are discussed.

Foundational Principles of Behavior

Module 2 discusses three underlying principles of behavior: all behavior is communication, all behavior has a function, and behavior occurs in chains or a sequence of events.

Introduction to the Escalation Cycle and Baseline Phase

Module 1 provides an overview of the phases of the escalation cycle and begins the initial discussion of the baseline phase. School-wide strategies such as relationships, classroom practices and consistent responses to disruptive behavior are reviewed.

The Escalation Phase

Module 7 describes the escalation phase of the cycle and provides descriptions of several strategies that can be implemented when a student enters this phase.

De-Escalating Behavior During the Trigger Phase

Module 6 provides several evidence-based strategies that can be utilized when a student enters the trigger phase of the escalation cycle.
