The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training is considered the worldwide standard for crisis prevention and intervention training. By using nonviolent crisis intervention training as part of a comprehensive plan, we can learn how to defuse challenging and disruptive behavior before an incident escalates to a crisis situation. Successful implementation leads to a change in adult professional behavior and a change in staff relationships with the individuals we serve. The training reduces the risk of injury by decreasing the number of physical interventions, improves communication among staff by establishing a common language, boosts staff confidence to intervene both verbally and physically and alleviates the stress and anxiety associated with confusion or uncertainty in crisis moments. The training helps our children and youth to live, learn, and thrive in a safe and respectful environment, to interact with positive role models who are well equipped to manage difficult situations and learn new coping skills, and to feel supported by staff who are empathic, compassionate, and respectful.
The emphasis of the training is on early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behavior. This seminar prepares staff to safely remove themselves and others from a dangerous situation. The participants learn: how to identify behaviors that could lead to a crisis; how to most effectively respond to each behavior to prevent the situation from escalating; how to use verbal and nonverbal techniques to defuse hostile behavior and resolve a crisis before it becomes violent; how to cope with their own fear and anxiety and learn principles of a non-harmful physical intervention.
