Program: Professional Development

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980’s. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

Furthermore, TCIS requires between 10 and 12 hours of refreshers annually, including on-going evaluation and formal assessments to maintain certification.

Program: Professional Development

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980’s. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

Furthermore, TCIS requires between 10 and 12 hours of refreshers annually, including on-going evaluation and formal assessments to maintain certification.
