Workshop Details

CATEGORY: Case Management Training

The Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) developed the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training (NVCI) in the late 1960’s. It is a highly recommended and well-recognized national and international workshop that teaches basic proven crisis intervention techniques to defuse disruptive and assaultive behavior. The workshop consists of interactive lecture with activities.

A CPI certification card is issued to each participant and is valid for 1 year.


Some of the topics in this workshop include:

  • How to identify behaviors that could lead to a crisis.
  • How to respond to prevent the situation from escalating
  • How to use verbal and nonverbal techniques to resolve a crisis before it becomes violent
  • How to use principles of personal safety to avoid injury if behavior becomes physical
  • How to develop team intervention strategies and techniques
  • How to maintain rapport with the acting-out individual
  • Key steps for debriefing after a crisis
