CPI is proud to announce that 47 Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Certified Instructors were inducted into the CPI Hall of Merit on July 21, 2011, during a special awards reception and dinner at the 2011 CPI International Instructors’ Conference, held in Orlando, FL. The Instructors were recognized for their extraordinary commitment to a continuous Training Process that promotes Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM for those they serve.
The 2011 Hall of Merit selection process included a review of the records of over 26,000 active Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Certified Instructors. Selection criteria included the number of staff trained, the total hours spent training, the number of training programs taught, the number of CPI training programs attended, and the number of years as a Certified Instructor. As Meritorious Instructors, these individuals serve in an advisory capacity and provide CPI leadership with valuable guidance to help influence the direction of CPI’s Instructor Association.
“We rely on these leaders, within their organizations and across their professions, to provide real-world practice-based evidence regarding the effectiveness of our trainings,” said Judith Schubert, CPI’s president. “They continue to validate the powerful impact of training as a vehicle for positively changing the quality of care with those they support.”
The inductees include many Instructors who have been certified to deliver the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program for more than 20 years. Those honored include Instructors from 19 different US states and five Canadian provinces. Instructors from the United Kingdom and New Zealand were also recognized. A plaque with each Meritorious Instructor’s name is prominently displayed in the Hall of Merit at CPI international headquarters in Milwaukee, WI.
