CPI Training To Be Held August 25 and 30, September 10
Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center will be hosting Crisis Prevention Institute, or CPI, training. The initial CPI course will be held August 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while a refresher CPI course will be held September 10 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 August 30 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.
All training participants in the initial training should wear comfortable clothing and closed-toed shoes. When the physical restraint portion of the class is taught and practiced, participants will be asked to remove scarves, ties, and any jewelry that could scratch. In addition to successfully demonstrating the application of physical intervention skills, individuals will be required to pass a post-test prior to being certified.
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. Given the complex nature of Autism Spectrum Disorder, 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.
Interested participants may sign up at MOESC website, www.moesc.net/register. All training registrations are limited to 30 participants. Client/Partner cost for any of the courses is $60.00, while non-client cost is $75.00. Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center provides these services in conjunction with the Crisis Prevention Institute, Inc., for which a partnership agreement exists, and trainings are intended for registrants within the field of education.
