Does anyone have any or know a good resource for materials/information/videos concerning Excited Delirium in general or in the correctional setting? I've been to the ExcitedDelirium.org website but have not been able to find much else on the subject that was useful.
Although it is not in a correctional setting, the Southern Nevada Health District has some excellent resources on-line.
The videos can be downloaded, there is an article by Dr. Heck, and there is a post test. (All free) I use the video as an example of deescalation. These videos are specific to excited delirium, but the person could just as easily be a schizophrenic, or someone with a tramatic brain injury.
An excellent series of case studies on excited delirium can be found in Sudden Deaths in Custody. ISBN 1-58829-475-7 The book is not cheap, but it was worth the price.
