Verbal De-escalation: Setting Limits

Target Audience: General education and exceptional education teachers K-12, deans, behavior specialists, paraprofessionals/support personnel, counselors, and administrators - any school staff who work with students with challenging behaviors

Course Objective: This 1-day, face-to-face, professional development is based upon the philosophies and work of CPI (Crisis Prevention Intervention).  This course will empower staff with techniques to increase confidence for intervening with challenging, non-compliant behaviors.  

Course Description:  Special focus will be placed on increasing staff’s ability to set limits in a systematic and effective manner.  In this course only verbal de-escalation strategies will be modeled and practiced; no physical intervention. 

In this course participants will:

  • acknowledge that the behaviors and attitudes of staff directly impact the behaviors and attitudes of students and vice versa.

  • learn to recognize and avoid personal power struggles

  • develop strategies for setting clear and enforceable limits

  • strengthen listening skills and use them as a tool to sharpen your ability to set limits

  • support the Care, Welfare, Safety, and Security of staff and students you support

Implementation Activity: Participants are required to complete and submit an assignment in order to demonstrate implementation of content and earn professional development points. 

Follow-up Method:

Email communication and support will be available throughout the implementation period upon participant request.
