This course looks to bridge that gap and address what happens in a situation when reasonable force is needed. A potentially dangerous situation where injuring one of the parties is not necessary, but some level of physical component is likely to be utilized. Conflict resolution skills will be taught in the form of de-escalation strategies, avoidance, restraining and controlling techniques.
