Nonviolent Crisis Intervention

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention (NVCI) provides your staff with the skills to safely recognize and respond to everyday crisis situations. 

Recognize & Respond to Crisis - Your staff learns decision-making skills to match the level of the response to the risk of the crisis, focusing on the least-restrictive response to ensure the Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security of those in your care. This includes recognizing the stages of an escalating crisis and learning evidence-based techniques to appropriately de-escalate.

A potentially violent situation is an unsettling situation for everyone involved. The person who has “acted out” may run the gamut of emotions from fear to embarrassment. The person who attempts to intervene is subjected to tremendous stress and fear for his/her own personal safety.

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training will teach you how to prevent an emotionally and physically threatening situation from escalating out of control. The training will teach you practical techniques to help you defuse and explosive situation and feel confident about it. The NCI techniques emphasize both the staff person and the acting out person. NCI only recommends physical restraint when all verbal and para-verbal techniques have been exhausted.

Hybrid training - 3-5 hours of online training is required to be completed BEFORE this in-person training.

This training will contain updated training material.
