The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program is a safe, nonharmful behavior management system designed to help staff provide for the best possible care, welfare, safety, and security of disruptive, assaultive, and out-of-control individuals even during their most violent moments. This program provides participants with training on how to determine levels of disruptive behavior and appropriate staff responses to the behavior. All trainers are senior or master level certified instructors through the Crisis Prevention Institute. This program meets Wisconsin Act 125 requirements.
Restraint and Seclusion in Public Schools Updates
Wisconsin passed a Seclusion and Restraint Law effective September 1, 2012. The legislation requires all Wisconsin public school employees that use physical restraint be trained in the safe use of restraint. In Wisconsin and CESA #4, the program that meets the requirements of the law is CPI’s (Crisis Prevention Institute) Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training.
