In any given situation, it can be a challenge to remain respectful when under threat. Whether the threat is real or perceived, the stress of the situation can cause us to react in ways that we might later regret. However, it is important to try to stay calm and not fuel the fire. When we allow ourselves to get caught up in the moment, we are more likely to say or do something that could make the situation worse. 

Assess for Action

IIn any given situation, it is important to be able to determine what is being said and what is not. This ability allows you to take the appropriate course of action, based on the information you have. Additionally, it is important to recognize the limits of a request, in order to determine what action can be taken, even if it is not the asked-for course of action. We will explore what the best course of action is when confronted with an impossible ask.


It is important to listen and learn what you are able for building a connection with the person in crisis. What is the person in crisis after and why? Listening to the person in crisis means you may be giving them an ear no one else has.


To mend something is to fix something that is broken or damaged. To hone in on what that something is requires skill because it is possible what needs to be fixed has nothing to do with what caused a tipping point. Let's examine how to mend something broken for someone else. 

**Please Note: Use of CALM CUES™ does not guarantee a crisis situation will not occur. CALM CUES serves as a de-escalation strategy on what to stay and do in an escalating or crisis situation.**


Now that you have listened and learned what may be ailing the person in crisis, how can you connect with them? What have you experienced similarly in your life which will establish similarity between you and the person in crisis? Eliminating any biases and closing as many gaps between yourself and the others as possible will increase the likelihood of creating a safe environment. 


A person in crisis is experiencing significant unmet needs. Having this understanding will help you to focus more on the needs of the other person to adapt to what is occurring for the individual and for you to be in a better place to understand and potentially empathize with the person in crisis. 

Emotionally Regulate

It can be difficult to know how to react when faced with a crisis. However, it is important to try to emotional regulate in order to focus on the elements of the situation that you are in control of. This will help to decrease anxiety and allow you to react sensibly. We will discuss what to do to foster emotional regulation.


When someone is in crisis, it can be difficult to know how to support them. However, simply showing that you care about them and are willing to support them can go a long way. Even if you are unable to grant the request, working with the person in crisis to support them can establish a safe environment. In doing so, you have established a foundation of trust and respect that can be beneficial in times of crisis. We'll discuss out to support others to create a safer, non-threatening environment.
