KidsPeace’s Healing Magazine Focuses on De-Escalation of Kids in Crisis


SCHNECKSVILLE, PA (November 19, 2018) – “Keep Calm and Carry On” may seem like just a T-shirt-ready catchphrase – but that sentiment is actually key to successful interventions with young people in crisis.

The Fall/Winter 2018 issue of KidsPeace’s Healing Magazine takes a closer look at de-escalation techniques – with articles examining three comprehensive approaches to de-escalation in the therapeutic setting, along with ideas for adopting de-escalation in everyday life (including coloring books for adults!).

The latest issue also features:

  • A discussion of how pop culture references to suicide can affect the work of therapists who are counseling at-risk individuals
  • An article on why it’s important that parents work to instill in their kids a resilient attitude toward life – what some people call “True Grit”
  • An examination of a new program in New York aimed at closing the gaps in appropriate care and services for kids in need
  • And a review of a new book by an Olympic champion, detailing her struggles in coping with a history of horrific abuse.
