This paper offers communication and intervention skills for the faculty to use to avoid an escalating conflict and its consequences. It is an approach that is not centered upon a framework of authoritative force; instead it emphasizes communication skills and the faculty's ability to employ techniques that disengage and de-escalate potentially dangerous situations.
