2020-2021 Crisis Prevention Training (CPI)

The training emphasizes creating and maintaining a safe, caring, and respectful environment for staff and students.  Participants learn how to defuse challenging and disruptive behaviors before an incident escalates to a crisis situation.  Disengagement and holding skills will be taught and practiced by all participants.  Benefits include reducing the risk of injury by decreasing the number of physical interventions, improving communication among staff, and increasing staff confidence to intervene early and appropriately.

All participants who successfully complete the post-test will be certified through the Crisis Prevention Institute for two years.  The training helps schools meet Wisconsin Act 125 requirements.  All trainers are certified instructors through the Crisis Prevention Institute.

The Initial Training is intended for individuals who have not been previously trained in Crisis Prevention Intervention or were trained more than 2 years ago.

Workshop Day 2:  8:30AM-12:00PM

Cost:  $200/person (includes morning refreshments, lunch both days, workbook, and materials)
