Intervention Full Training
This in-depth 16 hour blended training covers a variety of topics, emphasizing both de-escalation strategies as well as specific steps to try and prevent behavioral crisis from occurring in the first place. A situation that no one wants to see happen is either a student or staff member getting injured during an intervention. For that reason heavy emphasis will be placed on how staff can intervene in not only the safest but most reasonable way possible.
This yearly intervention refresher training is meant to provide staff with a review of the information and skills learned in the previously attended FULL Intervention training. The refresher training will include but not be limited to a review of all physical intervention skills, verbal de-escalation methods, intervention best practices, and the impact of restraint. Participants will also be tested on knowledge of the state regulations on physical restraint.
Intensive Needs Training
The INTENSIVE NEEDS training is designed to help public school staff who are dealing with more difficult students and scenarios. This one day course will focus on personal safety skills (i.e. physical redirection, releases from grabs and holds etc), two-person escorts, and supportive floor holds. Heavy emphasis will be on staff and student safety as well as communication and teamwork.

Sometimes students can behave in ways that are unsafe not only for themselves, but for other members of the school community. In order to keep students safe in these situations staff may be required to use some form physical intervention.
The philosophy of the Crisis Intervention Solutions courses is two-fold. First is that physical intervention should be considered an emergency procedure of last resort after other non-physical interventions have either been tried and failed or deemed inappropriate. And second, if staff are ever required to physically intervene it should be done in the safest, most reasonable and respectful manner possible and with the least amount of force necessary to provide for the safety of a student.
