Gallia-Vinton ESC consultant Brett Wilson recently assisted with Crisis Prevention and Intervention (CPI) training at Dawson-Bryant Local Schools. Mr. Wilson presented collaboratively with Shawn Watson who is a CPI instructor and classroom teacher in the school district. CPI training is described as a nonviolent crisis intervention training that is designed to teach the best practices for managing difficult situations and disruptive behaviors. Trainees learn how to identify at-risk students, how to use nonverbal and verbal techniques to defuse potential hostile behavior or situations, and appropriate disengagement and restraint skills.
Certified CPI Trainers Thad Haines and Brett Wilson offer classes to local area schools. Please call (740) 245-0593 to schedule a training date.
