The ESC of Central Ohio offers crisis prevention and intervention training to teach safety and security for students and staff when addressing a continuum of behavioral issues. The training focuses on preventing and handling disruptive, unsafe behavior and teaches the ability to assess risk, actively problem solve and develop appropriate interventions. Physical intervention is taught as a last resort, using classroom models designed to be non-harmful and non-invasive.
The ESC offers initial and refresher trainings throughout the school year. Districts are welcome to inquire about scheduled trainings. Alternatively, districts may choose to host a program facilitated by ESC CPI certified trainers. CPI trainings must be conducted at the group level.
Training is available free of charge to staff working in ESC classrooms. For staff members working in ESC member districts
, please ask your district special education director to contact us for training arrangements.
