Non-Violent Crisis Intervention®
November 14 @ 9:00 am - November 16 @ 4:30 pm$275
The Non-Violent Crisis Intervention® (NCI) program is considered the worldwide standard for crisis prevention and intervention training. These two half-day virtual trainings (9am-12pm) and in-person training (9am-4:30pm) will teach clinic staff de-escalation techniques and intervention strategies for workplace violence prevention. The workshop includes independent self-paced content, lecture, and situation-based guided practice with certified instructors. Now available as a blended learning course with a reduced classroom delivery option to adhere to social distancing protocols. In-person attendance is required on the last day of the scheduled training on November 16 from 9am-4:30pm, location TBD.
By the end of the virtual training, participants will:
- Identify warning signs that indicate an escalation toward aggressive or violent behavior.
- Learn how to take appropriate measures to avoid, decelerate, and de-escalate crisis situations.
- Assess the level of risk associated with crisis behavior and make appropriate decisions related to the management of such risks.
- Identify the impact of crisis events and describe post-crisis responses that can be used for personal and organizational support and learning.
- Address the serious issue of physical intervention through careful assessment of risks and an evaluation.
