Key Features of the Training
CPI Verbal Intervention™ incorporates trauma-informed and person-centred approaches. We recommend this training for professionals who work in environments that require them to manage and respond to escalating behaviour without using restrictive or physical intervention techniques. Participants will engage with seven modules, starting from understanding behaviours to post-crisis assessment.
We have taken the term MAPA® which was used to describe the full curriculum and divided it into two distinct programmes:
This programme, Verbal Intervention™ enables you to teach all the CPI preventative approaches and Safety Intervention™ enables you to teach all the CPI preventative interventions plus the disengagements and/or holding skills.
Recognise & Respond to Crisis Behaviour
Participants learn to recognise signs of distress and gain a broad range of tools to help them intervene early to prevent conflict and escalation. They’ll gain a clear understanding of using the right skills at the right time to effectively de-escalate when conflict arises, so that a behavioural crisis doesn’t occur.
Best Practice in Adult Learning
Verbal Intervention™ is based on the latest principles in adult learning with an emphasis on simple strategies that can be immediately used by your entire staff.
Evidence-Based & Internationally Accredited
The course is based on the latest research and includes approaches that have a proven track record of effectiveness.
The programme provides both Continuing Education Credits (CEC) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Credits.
