You will learn techniques for engagement, de-escalation, team roles and responsibilities, managing intelligence, equipment use and set-up, as well as strategies to overcome resistance and emotional arousal.

        [EXTERNAL COURSE] IPTM - Hostage Crisis Negotiations Level II


    Dates:   Dec. 5 - 9, 2022


    Presented by:  IPTM - Institute of Police Technology and Management


    Location: IPTM / University of North Florida, 12000 Alumni Drive, Jacksonville, FL  32224


    COURSE DESCRIPTION:


    This course will further enhance the knowledge and skills you acquired in IPTM’s Hostage Crisis Negotiations–Level I course, or its 40-hour equivalent. As advanced negotiation concepts are introduced, the primary focus shifts to team building and team roles and responsibilities. In addition, we will take an in-depth look at a subject’s psychological state and examine methods to de-escalate situations involving subjects displaying psychosis/psychotic behavior and schizoid affective disorders, domestic violence and the cycle of violence, paranoid personality types and avoidance/dependent personality disorders to achieve cooperation.


    Communication techniques are the primary means of event resolution. Therefore, a continual study and practice of communication skills developed during the basic course of training will be enhanced.   We will also discuss uniquely challenging events for responders and negotiators – such as murder/suicide, suicide-by-cop, locational suicidal activity, planned stand-offs, annihilators and domestic violence crises – and explore methods for resolution.


    You will have an opportunity to practice and advance your negotiation skills with more complex scenario-based practical exercises, including negotiation problems, team driven training, use of negotiation equipment and managing a crisis event.
