CPI Training To Be Held March 1, 3 and 15

Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center will be hosting Crisis Prevention Institute, or CPI, training. The initial CPI course will be held March 3rd from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while the refresher CPI training will be held March 1st from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A special CPI training with a focus on helping individuals with autism will be held March 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. These are in-person training sessions that will be held at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center, 890 W. 4th Street in Mansfield.

The program is a safe, non-harmful behavior management system designed to help human service professionals provide the best possible Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security of disruptive, assaultive, and out-of-control individuals even during their most violent moments.

Participants in the initial training should wear comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes. During the physical interactions, participants will wash hands, wear nitrile gloves, and remain with the same partner(s) through the duration of the training. You must adhere to COVID-19 guidelines attesting to your wellness, having your temperature checked and wearing a mask. Personal Protective Equipment will be available. In addition to successfully demonstrating the application of physical intervention skills, individuals will be required to pass a post-test prior to being certified. 

For the initial training, registration is limited to 10 participants for safety. 

Physical holds are not practiced by participants in the refresher course but rather reviewed visually through demonstrations by the instructor. Registration for the refresher course is limited to 40 participants, and everyone must follow the same COVID-19 guidelines attesting to your wellness, having your temperature checked and wearing a mask.

The CPI Autism training includes 8 additional strategies to consider when working with children on the autism spectrum. These strategies embed a spirit of empathy, dignity, and respect.

CPI techniques can be used safely with a wide variety of people, including those on the autism spectrum. Given the complex nature of ASD, there is no magic formula or simple solution that will work to assist all students with autism spectrum disorders. Every plan must be personalized and based on an assessment of a student’s needs.
