CRISIS PREVENTION INTERVENTION
TCEC has a number of crisis prevention consultants who have been certified through the Crisis Intervention Institute. This CPI training consists of learning all of the components of the CPI Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program for certification or renewal.
CPI training provides skills to de-escalate verbal and physical crisis situations with the goal of improving school culture and decreasing the use of restraint and seclusion within school environments. The training will prepare staff to respond effectively to crisis situations and will provide strategies for staff to implement through evidence-based techniques, including non-restrictive and restrictive interventions (when necessary and as a last resort).
TCEC is available for annual CPI certification and additional refresher training(s) throughout the school year. Staff have the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) through CPI training.
