Behavior De-Escalation

All staff at Texas NeuroRehab Center that interact with the children and adolescents are trained in Satori Alternatives to Managing Aggression (SAMA), and are recertified every six months.

The Satori method aims to prevent aggression from becoming harmful. The emphasis of the course focuses on verbal de-escalation in all interactions.

The Primary Principles of SAMA

  • Personal Effects of Anger
  • Nature of Trust
  • Assisting Process (Five Phases to Assess Situation)
  • Protection of Self and Others

Safety is the most important element in managing behaviors with SAMA.
