Presented by Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital plus

This full-day seminar is only for Sharp Mesa Vista and Sharp McDonald Center employees who have direct interaction with patients. It reinforces crisis prevention and emphasizes early intervention and non-physical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behavior, including the Crisis Prevention Institute's (CPI) Personal Safety Techniques.

The eight-hour course is designed for newly-hired individuals who have not had CPI training in the past. The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program is a safe, non-harmful behavior management system designed to help human service professionals 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 seminar is an introduction to crisis prevention that emphasizes early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behavior. CPI’s Personal Safety Techniques are included in this course.
