Non-Violent Crisis Intervention (NCI), a program owned and managed by the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI), is a behavior management system that is proven to be safe and non-harmful. It is designed to help human service workers provide the best possible care and welfare for assaultive, disruptive, or out-of-control persons even during the most violent moment. The training focuses on prevention, de-escalation, personal safety, and physical intervention. The main goal in applying nonviolent interventions is to provide for the care, welfare, safety, and security of all persons involved.
The IU offers an INITIAL training course that provides participants with a one-year certification in non-violent crisis intervention. In order to maintain CPI certification, “Blue Card” holders must participate in a yearly refresher training. The IU provides refresher training opportunities quarterly (January, April, July, & October) and will work with schools to provide customized refresher opportunities as we are able.
The Central Intermediate Unit only provides CPI – Non-violent Crisis Intervention training to the schools we serve with-in our catchment area.
