Texas HB 2789, effective September 1, 2015, requires the Department of Aging and Disability Services to provide trauma-informed care training for employees who work directly with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in state-supported living centers and intermediate care facilities. It also allows the training required to be provided through an Internet website.
CPI Training Can Help You Comply
Care facilities throughout the US use our Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program because it focuses on prevention, de-escalation techniques, and other alternatives to restraint. Our training helps staff identify underlying causes of challenging behaviors, and how staff and resident behaviors affect each other. The program also emphasizes:
  • Evaluating risk of harm and signs of distress
  • Documenting incidents
  • Safer, less restrictive holding skills to be used only as a last resort
  • Debriefing strategies to help prevent incidents from recurring
How to Get Training
We can bring the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program on-site to your facility, or you can attend training in one of more than 150 public locations throughout the US.
