What is DE-ESCALATE? Successful trial lawyer-turned-mediator, Douglas E. Noll, has written the highly de-escalate angry personanticipated De-Escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 Seconds or Less, giving readers the secrets to calming an angry person of any age while remaining centered and calm. Based on Noll’s thirty-five years of law and mediation experience, the book guides readers on how to keep their composure during a heated argument, and to withstand insults, provocations, and disrespect from others without losing their cool. In a world more politically divided than ever, De-Escalate provides a simple, surefire way to communicate with others respectfully and productively, despite how tense a situation may be.

When someone faces an upset spouse, a confrontation on social media, an unhappy customer at work, or an unresponsive teenager, how well do they handle it? Does the argument intensify because of their response? In De-Escalate, Noll shares how to defuse conflicts quickly by focusing on the emotions of the angry person rather than the words being said (or screamed). In this way, habitual responses of anger and frustration are circumvented and cooler heads will likely prevail.
