Low Arousal Program

Low Arousal Program

The Low Arousal approach emphasises a range of behaviour management strategies that focus on the reduction of stress, fear and frustration and seeks to prevent aggression and crisis situations. The Low Arousal approach seeks to understand the role of the ‘situation’ by identifying triggers and using low intensity strategies and solutions to avoid punitive consequences for distressed individuals.

More information about this approach is available at:


If you are interested in having the Low Arousal Training Program come to your organization (or KRRC hosting your group), please contact our Low Arousal Support Coordinator, Derek Dunham, at ddunham@krrc.ns.ca.
