Philosophy on De-escalation and Crisis Management

Good Hearts supports the use of preventive, de-escalation techniques and a calming, therapeutic approach to crisis prevention and management in order to avoid the need for the use of restraints.

Good Hearts will provide supervision to foster homes to ensure that foster parents are:

  • providing a safe, stable, and structured environment;
  • managing the foster home in such a way as to minimize disruptions during a crisis; and
  • utilizing developmentally and age appropriate behavior intervention techniques to resolve emergencies.
