CPI’s Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program is a safe, nonharmful behavior management system designed to help educators and other human service professionals provide for the best possible Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of disruptive, assaultive, and out-of-control individuals—even during their most violent moments. This session gives you a basic understanding of the program’s proven crisis intervention methods and teaches you how to apply them in a school environment.

The Preventive Techniques focuses on early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing challenging behavior. The six-hour session offers a framework for organizing your thinking about how student behavior escalates and strategies for safely responding when it does.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify behaviors that could lead to a crisis.
  • Most effectively respond to each type of behavior in order to prevent a situation from escalating.
  • Use verbal and nonverbal techniques to defuse hostile behavior and resolve a crisis before it becomes violent.
  • Cope with your own fear and anxiety.
  • Use CPI’s Principles of Personal Safety and CPI’s Personal Safety TechniquesSM to avoid injury to yourself and others if the behavior becomes physical.
  • Bring about necessary closure, debriefing, and re-establishment of a therapeutic rapport with the individuals involved in a crisis situation.
