Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI Initial Training) 2022-2023
This training is designed for any administrator and staff who are interactive with students in their building/classrooms that exhibit extreme behaviors. This training focuses on how to de-escalate the behavior before it becomes harmful. It also focuses on deescalating students who are in crisis through verbal and nonverbal techniques. CPI is a training directed towards a positive drive, and helps the staff learn the importance their attitude can affect responses to a crisis as well as how students in crisis respond to staff. Staff will learn what is natural, and what is appropriate which includes postvention and personal safety techniques such as learning how to block and deflect objects and how to release from grabs. There will be disengagement skills/personal safety skills taught as part of this course. CHILD RESTRAINTS will be optional. Estimated training time is 8 hours. Principals are responsible for substitutes if needed for you to attend this training.
1.To identify the four stages of behavior and respond appropriately. 2.To de-escalate an escalating behavior. 3.To perform safety interventions when necessary, without harming the student or self. 4.To comply with the guiding philosophy of Care, Welfare, Safety and Security.
Rationale for Providing this Professional Learning Experience
