Chief Harry P. Dolan’s, (Ret.) Surviving Verbal Conflict® Training Program has been provided to tens of thousands of public safety professionals throughout the country. In response to popular requests, Chief Dolan has developed a train the trainer program providing public safety professionals with the training, tools and material required to train agency personnel in the highly acclaimed Surviving Verbal Conflict® Verbal De-escalation Program.

Surviving Verbal Conflict® Verbal De-escalation Train-the-Trainer course develops and prepares public safety professionals to serve as trainers in Surviving Verbal Conflict®. The 3 ½ day (26 hour) course covers the Surviving Verbal Conflict® course material as well as instructor development content such as how to present the lesson plan & program, student learning styles, and teaching practical exercises. Participants will be provided with all instructor related materials supporting their presentations i.e. SVC PowerPoint presentation, workbooks, practical exercises, as well as ongoing technical support.

Today’s increased service demands and the scrutiny placed upon public safety professionals have resulted in a growing need to master verbal conflict management skills. When negative verbal encounters escalate to the point where physical intervention is used, criticism often results when it is later discovered that there is little evidence of verbal de-escalation techniques employed by officers. This is particularly true when incident video and audio reviews are utilized. In some cases, it has become clear that the verbal actions of the public safety responders served to escalate the situation. Administrators are now asking, “Is this an area in which the training tape has run out? Have we adequately trained our personnel to successfully manage and respond to verbal confrontations in a professional manner?"
