CPI Training: Helping Kentucky Schools Meet Regulations on Restraint & Seclusion
A regulation approved by the Kentucky Board of Education guides schools in reducing the use of physical restraint. The regulation, 704 KAR 7:160, requires annual training for staff on safe and effective ways to:
 
  • Prevent the need for restraint.
  • Use alternative behavioral interventions, including verbal de-escalation, crisis management, and positive behavioral interventions and supports [PBIS] techniques.
  • Use physical restraint only as a last resort when a student presents an immediate danger to self or others.
  • Monitor for signs of distress.

The regulation became effective on February 1, 2013.

Learn more in New Rules for Reducing Physical Restraint in Kentucky Schools. Also read the regulation in its entirety, and download the Kentucky Department of Education's Guidance Document for 704 KAR 7:160 [PDF].

CPI Can Help!
Schools across the US use our Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program techniques because they’ve been shown to be effective in both the prevention of and the safe use of physical restraint. CPI training focuses on prevention and de-escalation techniques and other alternatives to restraint and seclusion, as well as how to use safer, less-restrictive physical interventions only as a last resort. Training gives staff tools to organize their thinking about risk behavior and help them determine the most appropriate, least restrictive intervention to use in each unique situation.

Tailoring Training to Your School’s Needs
CPI training can be tailored to the unique needs of your school or district. With our train-the-trainer option, select staff can be certified to teach the program to other staff on a continuing basis. We also offer specialized materials to help connect the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program skills and strategies with your school-wide PBIS plan to increase positive student behavior.

How to Get Training
We can bring the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program on site to your school, or you can attend training in one of more than 150 public locations throughout the US.
