This course will train those providing the training for non-violent crisis intervention. The content of this course will address how to use instructional materials and the implementation of competency assessments for techniques related to releases from physical holds, bites, hair pulls and other forms of attack that could be encountered while working with consumers of mental health, developmental disabilities, substance abuse, or other healthcare services. This course will promote the safe intervention and prevention of crisis situations in home, community, or residential settings with the goal of reducing the need for restraint, seclusion, or timeout.
