CPI (Crisis Prevention Intervention) Training for Providers - Day 1 of 2

Wednesday, December 6, 2023

The MCBDDS Behavior Support Services Department is offering Crisis Prevention Institute’s (CPI) Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Training for Direct Support Professionals (DSP). This training is for both agency staff and independent providers who provide services in Montgomery County. Topics to be covered include de-escalation techniques, positive support strategies, communication considerations, risk assessment and staff responses to risk behaviors. Physical skills for self-protection and safe holds will also be taught. Class size is limited. Please note: This is a 2 day training, and therefore a two-day commitment.

Training objectives include:

• Identify and know how to respond to various levels of crisis behaviors.

• Recognize how to manage your own consistent, calm behavior to influence a positive outcome in a crisis.

• Learn strategies to strengthen nonverbal communication.

• Develop limit-setting strategies when verbally intervening to de-escalate defensive behaviors.

• Learn safety intervention strategies to maximize safety and minimize harm.

• Learn to assess risk.

• Explore a framework to help guide staff and the individuals in distress through a process of re-establishing the relationship.


CPI-certified trainers will provide training. Staff will be certified in using trained interventions for one year.

*This training is only open to staff that provides services in Montgomery County.
