CPI’s director of client services, Kendra Stea, MS, NCC, will present at the Great Lakes School-Based Behavior Solutions Summit taking place in Wisconsin Dells, WI from October 29 through October 30, 2012. The CPI presentation, "Trauma-Informed Care and Crisis Prevention," is scheduled for Tuesday, October 30, 2012 from 12:20 to 1:45 pm.
The session will instruct teachers of children with emotional-behavioral disabilities, special education teachers, principals, social workers, positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) coordinators, and other educators on trauma-informed care and crisis prevention, with an emphasis on addressing bullying with crisis prevention strategies.
Through recognizing the early warning signs of potential crisis situations, verbally and nonverbally de-escalating crises, and creating a safe and caring learning environment that is trauma informed and person centered, educators can decrease problem behavior and bullying and increase students’ academic achievement and social skills.
CPI’s Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program provides educators with positive strategies for defusing anxious, hostile, and violent behavior at the earliest possible stage. The program also reduces the risk of injury for students, teachers, and staff, and complies with legislative mandates.
