The series consists of six core courses:  Functional Behavior Assessment/ Behavior Intervention Plans, Data and Graphing, Reinforcement 101 and Reinforcement 102.  

Crisis Prevention Intervention

Crisis Prevention Intervention (CPI) is two day course that focuses on verbal de-escalation techniques and strategies to prevent violent or disruptive behavior in the classroom.  Participants learn decision making skills to match the level of the response to the risk of the behavior, while emphasizing the least restrictive method to ensure the safety of all.  Physical disengagement and intervention techniques that are used only as a last resort are taught as well.

Professional Crisis Management (PCM) is a complete and fully integrated system designed to manage crisis situations effectively, safely, and with dignity. It is composed of four primary strategies: crisis prevention strategies, crisis de-escalation strategies, crisis intervention strategies, and post crisis strategies.  Professional Crisis Management is only used in intensive middle and high school sites.
