People have to work and interact with others. This is a reality we all become familiar with in pre-school or kindergarten. There really isn't two ways about it. That's why we start at such a young age. We need to adapt and get used to all the individuals that aren't our parents. Not that this is always a simply process; because for some it isn't at all. Even when we reach adulthood, we can still encounter issues with other adults we work along-side. Now, the last thing we want to do, if we can help it, is to blow things wildly out of proportion. A physical altercation can end badly for everyone involved. This is why non violent crisis intervention is essential. Talk with your mouth before talking with your fist. I can imagine we've all ran into foul circumstances at some point or another in our lives. I certainly know I have. I can think of a time right off the top of my head when non violent crisis intervention was needed. I was working with a fellow employee at a video store. We got into an argument over who was doing which tasks that night. Before I knew it, we were in a scuffle. I popped him in the chin and we ended up grappling on the floor. I guess it's pretty obvious that non violent crisis intervention would have made sense at the time. You'd think two adults would have just talked it out, but sometimes tempers flare. Fortunately I am still friends with this fellow and we laugh about the altercation these days. For some people it doesn't work out so well. Violence in the workplace can end in job termination and law suits. We all know that tempers flare in common work atmospheres, but I can't even imagine how badly law enforcement needs non violent crisis intervention training. These guys and gals have to keep their cool in some pretty intense situations. It's their job to enforce the law and apprehend criminals, but do so in a civilized manner at the same time. Any fool can see how this would be a problem at times. Luckily they have professionals assisting them with non violent crisis intervention training and procedures. Anyway, I think their job puts things into perspective for the rest of us.
