Learn How Intervene in a Potential Crisis Situation and Become Certified in NVCI Training!


Description: At this event, participants will be certified in the Crisis Prevention Institute's Non-Violent Crisis Intervention (NVCI) Training. This training focuses on the recognition that all behavior is a form of communication and provides participants with the tools to recognize/respond appropriately to support the student and help deescalate the situation. Participants will be able to identify student’s behavioral levels and will learn valuable approaches/strategies to respond appropriately for each of those levels. Staff will learn how to intervene quickly with support to deescalate the student. Staff are also reminded to be aware of their own actions, behaviors and words as what they say and do will affect the student. Participants will discuss specific tools on how to intervene with a student in crisis in the most appropriate and least restrictive way. Finally, staff will learn disengagement and holding skills to only be used if needed as a last resort during a crisis situation. Participants will receive a Blue Card from CPI to show they are certified in NVCI, which is valid for up to two years.

Price: $245 per participant plus $25 workbook fee
