Reasonable and Responsible

Intervention Training for Educators

Intensive Needs Training

This brand new training is for staff who may need more in depth intervention skills. This one day course will focus on enhanced personal safety skills (i.e. physical redirection, releases from grabs and holds etc), two person escorts, and supportive floor holds. Priority will be on staff and student safety. To be eligible participants must have already attended a Full Intervention Training, be in good health, and current with their certification.

Full Intervention Training

This intervention course is designed for behavioral support staff working in public education. The 16 hour training focuses on crisis prevention, verbal de-escalation, intervention safety, and working as a team. Heavy emphasis will be placed on student safety, non-physical intervention, and acting in a reasonable manner. Participants should be in good physical health and able to lower themselves to the ground under their own power.

Refresher Training

The one-day Crisis Intervention Refresher training will include a review of all previously taught physical intervention skills, de-escalation methods, and the impact of restraint on all those involved. Intervention scenarios and possible responses will be covered as well. Participants will be expected to pass a written and physical skills test to demonstrate proficiency with the material.
