This five-day course certifies individuals as instructors for Vistelar's Principals of Stabilization and Contact (P.O.S.C.®) for Healthcare Professionals training program (Verbal Defense & Influence™), so they are authorized to teach this program within their organization.

This course covers all the material in the Healthcare High-Risk Area Staff program, with additional instruction on defensive tactics that go beyond Proxemics 10-5-2 and basic personal defense. This hands-on course teaches how to mesh verbal skills with physical alternatives in situations when an individual is physically acting out and physical engagement cannot be prevented (non-escalation), avoided (deescalation) or disengaged from. The emphasis in this course is on using the lowest level of intervention, minimizing the length of the intervention and use of team tactics.
