This two-day new certification class teaches caregivers strategies for identifying and managing verbal and non-verbal conflict to provide for the welfare, safety, and security of individuals in their care when encountering violent situations.
The short, first-day session covers self-protection skills. The full, second-day session covers therapeutic communication and team skills, including seclusion and restraint.
Once a year, starting in the calendar year after taking this class, participants will need to take the recertification class (drill) to maintain their certification.
