AVADE® is an acronym for Awareness-Vigilance-Avoidance-Defense-Escape. It is the most comprehensive, current, and effective approach to preventing, avoiding, de-escalating, and mitigating violence and aggression in any workplace setting. AVADE® can help you become safety-aware with a vigilant mindset, help you understand body language communication and de-escalation, and teach you defense techniques for yourself and others.
