The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention program is a safe, nonharmful behavior management system designed to help provide the best care, welfare, safety and security to those involved in crisis situations. This program focuses on prevention and teaches that physical intervention is to be used only as a last resort, when a student presents an imminent danger to self or others. All physical interventions are designed to be nonharmful and to maintain the student's dignity. This training is an update for those who have attended a full-day inital or refresher training in the last year.
Participants must be in good physical health (capable of bending, lifting, etc.). Please dress comfortably and wear closed toe shoes.
Senate Bill 1196 and the Texas Administrative Code §89.1053 require staff to document completion of Texas Behavior Support Initiative (TBSI) modules in addition to de-escalation/restraint specific courses. These modules are provided by Region 4 via an online learning format. You must create an account through Region 4 in order to access the session.
If you have never completed, or can’t document completion of the Texas Behavior Support Initiative (TBSI) modules once, please complete these prior to attending this course.
