Program: Professional Development
Dates: 3/28/2017NewStarting Soon
With a core philosophy of providing for the Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of everyone involved in a crisis situation, the program's strategies give educators the skills to safely respond to various levels of risk behavior while balancing the responsibilities of care. The emphasis is on early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behavior. There is a strong focus on verbal de-escalation techniques and using physical restraint only as a last resort.
The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program is a highly interactive, reality-based training program combining visual, auditory, and experiential training methods to accommodate various adult learning styles. Extensive demonstrations, application activities, practice, peer teaching activities, and a written examination ensure that participants learn and understand program concepts.
Annual re-certification is required, which is the 4 hour NVCI refresher course.
