Three Key Areas
A suite of professional development opportunities which will elevate your coaching, training and instructional practice to the highest modern levels.
Non-Escalation and De-Escalation
The flagship Vistelar train-the-trainer programme enables you to teach tried-and-tested verbalisation skills, based on core values, which integrate and deploy in different situations to prevent escalation, de-escalate aggression or resistance and manage emotionally disturbed persons effectively.
Protective Physical Interventions
Your staff depend on the functional skills imparted to them in your training to keep themselves and their colleagues safe when they deploy physical interventions. These last-resort protective physical interventions can be deployed at all levels of risk and are appropriate for more vulnerable or more capable persons who are at risk.

At Dynamis we have been pioneering modern and functionally effective training methods for both verbal and physical skills in preventing and managing conflict since 2006.
We have sought out the best conflict management training content and the best learning methods in the world and bring them together for you and your team.

What our customers are saying:
Tailored to situations we actually face...
“Gerard was a great teacher, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. He tailored the training to situations we might actually find ourselves in which I found incredibly useful.”
Louise C. // Homeless Shelter Support Worker
I left feeling confident that I could safely apply the techniques I had been shown and know when to use them. Since completing this training another member of staff and I who where both on the course have been able to safely escort a child, whom we have previously struggled and felt unsure/ unsafe with escorting when dis-regulated back in to the school building safety. We were both on the same page as were the other members of staff who witnessed the incident (and were also present for the training that day) and this greatly helped us to safely bring the child back in to school. I would like to once again give my thanks to the team who came in to teach us that day. They were both amazing!
