CPI training programs provide strategies and techniques for all levels of human services professionals including social workers, counselors, and youth workers.
These strategies and techniques focus on the Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security℠ of staff, parents, and their children with evidence-based de-escalation and crisis prevention approaches.
Verbal Intervention™ Training is for human services professionals interested in a non-physical approach to intervention. This training focuses on de-escalation strategies which result in safe, non-restrictive interventions.
Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Training provides staff with the skills needed to safely de-escalate crisis situations while also providing adaptations for those providing care to individuals impacted by trauma.
Staff learn safe and advanced disengagement and physical intervention techniques for situations involving dangerous behaviours and gain the ability to intervene in situations that don’t require these advanced skills.
Dementia Capable Care Training is an evidence-based dementia and behavior training program that helps front-line staff be the best care partner for those living at different stages of dementia.
