Hi Sami –

This might be a slightly different take than you had in mind, but PLD sponsored a good OLA preconference in 2014 with Oregon presenters. Here are the details about the OLA session and contact information for one of the presenters:

Mental Health Issue or Bad Hair Day?
This high energy interactive session will involve a combination of lecture and
audience participation. The first half of the training covers an overview of mental health and
substance use issues, and other types of situations that can cause people to become agitated.
We will review the science of communication, including proxemics, body language, facial
expression, paralanguage and words themselves. The second half of the training addresses
specific skills in a four-staged approach. Finally, this presentation discusses self-care and how
our own presence of mind can greatly affect the success or failure of the de-escalation process.
Presenters: Kathy Prenevost, LMSW, Mark Schorr, LPC

Kathy Prenevost - 503-819-6570,

I hope you find what you need!

Hello collective brain -

I am looking for a closer to home version of the Black Belt Librarian. Does anyone have a recommendation for someone in Oregon that trains staff with library safety and security?  Thanks.
