Non-Violent Crisis Intervention

Written on April 27th, 2016

July 6, 2016

This workshop is only available to educators who teach in an OACS school.

Bev Kalk will lead participants through the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training Program which focuses on safe management of disruptive and assaultive behavior. The training is offered in two parts.  Part A would include the Verbal Intervention Skills and Personal Safety Techniques which emphasize early intervention and nonphysical methods of preventing or managing disruptive behaviour. Participants continuing on to Part B will receive more extensive practice in crisis prevention methods, including restraint positions, transport techniques and team strategies to be used in a crisis. Part B is not necessary for schools to do that do not have current potentially violent individuals. Participants can choose to do Part A only (a minimum of 6 hours for certification) or Part A and B (a minimum of 8 hours for certification) Due to the fact that Part B is a team approach to intervention; it is recommended that a minimum of three members from a school be trained together as a crisis team. Those taking this portion of the training should have no pre-existing medical conditions that may prevent physical movement or weight bearing, for example back or shoulder injuries. Participants are all asked to wear comfortable clothing conducive to movement and some form of exercise shoes that are secured to the feet.
