Non-Violent Crisis Intervention (NCVI)

Presented in Co-operation with EOHS and SCS

This course is open to Laurier Students, staff and faculty only.

One Special Constable received instructor training in non-violent crisis intervention.  A brief synopsis of the course is below.  If you or a group of people are interested in taking this course, please contact the Environmental/Occupational Health & Safety Office to book a time.  

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention is a program set up to ensure the care, welfare, safety and securitysm of everyone involved in a crisis situation.  Participants include human service providers in fields such as health care, mental health, education, social welfare, residential services, security, law enforcement and corrections.

Time and time again, the principles and techniques taught in the nonviolent crisis intervention program have been proven effective in resolving potentially violent situations.  By participating in this program, you will gain the confidence necessary to handle crisis situations with minimal anxiety and maximum security.  The training will help you intervene more safely when behaviour becomes dangerous.  Most importantly, it won’t damage the professional bond you’ve worked so hard to establish with the individuals in your care.

The course is offered in two ways.

A one day course is offered as an introduction to crisis prevention that emphasizes early intervention and nonphysical methods for preventing or managing disruptive behaviour.  Personal Safety Techniquessm are also included.

A two day workshop expands on the one day seminar to introduce the study and practice or crisis prevention methods including restraint positions, transport techniques, and team strategies.
