Training sessions are available online and in class. Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of completion. Our Crisis Intervention Training Programs are designed to address various levels of risks within agencies/organizations among diverse population groups. Developed by a team of psychologists, behaviour analysts/therapists and martial arts experts, Safe Management Group’s programs use evidence based practices and techniques. Safe Management’s mission is guided by our core principle, caring for your safety through dignity and respect. Safe Management’s Crisis Intervention Training Program provides agencies/organizations with options and flexibility in order to address specific training needs. Our program is divided into two areas Prevention and Management:
- Risk Management: focuses on various levels of risk; client, staff, agency. Participants will be taught how to assess risk and prepare themselves, their clients and their environment to decrease risk and increase safety
- Relationship Management: recognizing that the most crises occur as a result of some aspect of the quality of their relationship with others. Our program teaches seven basic principles of relationship management with associated techniques of intervention.
- Behaviour Management: Participants will work through a series of questions that will assist them in understanding their client and how the client expresses him/her aggressive behaviour in response to a specific trigger. Participants will be trained in as well as understanding the early non-aggressive warning signs and developing appropriate interventions to prevent and manage an escalating client.
- Aggression Management: This section of the program describes how to assess the development of an aggressive situation in terms of four phases and how to incorporate these findings into an understandable “escalation continuum”. Participants will also create an appropriate “staff response continuum” based on their knowledge of the client. This section recognizes that not all clients escalate the same and that not all responses are appropriate for all individuals.
- Physical Intervention Concepts: This section teaches participants about Safe Management’s best practices regarding physical interventions. Bio-mechanical technology is integrated to ensure safe, effective, least intrusive physical interventions, with no pain, pressure points, or hyperextensions.
- Physical Intervention Techniques: This section teaches staff basic movement, blocks, releases, containments and specialized techniques for unique settings.
