Full Description/Meeting Details:

Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) is a two-day, 12-hour, face to face introduction course which focuses on verbal de-escalation techniques and strategies to prevent violent or disruptive behavior in the classroom, thereby allowing the teacher to maximize learning opportunities.  Physical intervention techniques will also be taught which are used as a last resort if verbal de-escalation attempts have failed, and/or a student or staff member are in imminent risk of harm.

In this initial course, you will learn how to:

·         Organize your thoughts about responding to agitated, disruptive and assaultive students.

·         Focus on alternatives when a person loses control and becomes violent.

·         Use techniques to control your own anxieties during interventions and maintain the best possible professional attitude.

·         Use nonverbal, paraverbal, verbal and physical intervention skills.

 

·         Work as a team to resolve disruptive and dangerous situations effectively, safely and respectfully.

The course is broken up into 10 units.

Units 1-6: Prevention and Deceleration Strategies

Key Learning Objectives: Identify behavior that indicates an escalation toward aggressive and violent behavior and take appropriate measures to avoid, decelerate, and/or de-escalate crisis situations.

Unit 7: Decision Making

Key Learning Objective: Assess the level of risk associated with crisis behavior and make appropriate decisions related to the management of such risks.

Units 8 & 9: Managing Behavioral Risk Using Disengagement and/or Holding Skills

Key Learning Objectives: Use suitable and acceptable physical interventions to reduce or manage risk behavior.

Unit 10: Postvention Approaches

Key Learning Objectives: Identify the impact of crisis events and describe post-crisis responses which can be used for personal and organizational support and learning.

 

** This course will require very close physical contact with two or more people for approximately two-three consecutive hours of the 12 hour course. Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be required and will be provided if you do not wish to wear your own that is district approved. PPE provided will include; face masks, face shields, disposable gowns, and latex gloves.

Successful completion of a written post-test and correct demonstration of the physical interventions will lead to a one year certification to utilize the physical components in the event of a crisis at your school. An annual, one day refresher course will be required to maintain ongoing certification.  

This training will take place at Kaley ES Rm 111 and your instructors for the course are Sarah Poor-Drewes, Kristina Lehman, and Sarah Drummond
