Verbal De-escalation

Conflict is inevitable and can occur in many forms. Conflict occurs any time there is a trial of strength between two opposing parties or principles. This can be quite common in many environments.  Unfortunately, a lot of today’s industry participants do not have a healthy attitude toward conflict and as such, are lacking some of the tools necessary for de-escalating conflict and working towards a more positive outcome.

Jeff Patterson has been a member of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department since 1998.  As the Defensive Tactics Lead Instructor with the Training Division, Patterson is responsible for the development, implementation, and instruction of:  Defensive Tactics, Use of Force, Verbal De-escalation, Excited Delirium, Taser, Terrorism/Weapons of Mass Destruction, Hazardous Materials and AMBER Alert.  In 2012, Patterson founded “Protective Thinking” – an innovative, physical and mental approach to providing self-defense training for civilian, corporate, police and military individuals and organizations.  Patterson’s Protective Thinking courses teach:  Awareness, Defensive Tactics, Use of Force, Active Shooter situations, Verbal De-Escalation. Patterson has extensive experience working with multiple agencies, local businesses, and community organizations.  He has worked with Homeland Security, 151 Infantry Division, 316th Psych Ops Unit US Army, IU Health, Indianapolis Fever, Indiana Pacer Organization, and Kroger Grocery Stores.
