Crisis Prevention Training | A Brief Overview of the Company
CPI — Educating, Empowering, and Enriching
CPI is an international training organization committed to best practices and safe behavior management methods that focus on prevention. Through a variety of specialized offerings and innovative resources, CPI educates and empowers professionals to create safe and respectful work environments. This enables professionals to enrich not only their own lives, but also the lives of the individuals they serve.
The cornerstone of CPI is the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® program, which is considered the worldwide standard for crisis prevention and intervention training. With a core philosophy of providing for the Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of everyone involved in a crisis situation, the program’s proven strategies give human service providers and educators the skills to safely and effectively respond to anxious, hostile, or violent behavior while balancing the responsibilities of care.
In response to business demands for adaptable solutions to manage potentially disruptive or even dangerous situations, CPI developed the Prepare Training® program. The strategies taught in this program have been effective in reducing the frequency and severity of these situations, increasing employee confidence and morale, and fostering a culture of Respect, Service, and Safety at Work®.
Focused on achieving positive outcomes with Crisis Prevention Training, Dementia Care Specialists training empowers therapists and care partners to work cohesively to deliver quality dementia care based on an individual’s best ability to function. This unique training allows facilities to deliver a higher standard of care and improve function, safety, and quality of life for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD).
Positive Options, a UK-based training and consultancy organization, joined the CPI family in 2010. With a philosophy and training practices that are rooted in person-centered thinking, action, and excellence, Positive Options provides a range of organizational solutions, including physical and nonphysical interventions, to meet the challenges of serving people who express themselves through aggressive and sometimes violent behaviors.
Throughout the UK and parts of Europe, Positive Options is considered the home of Management of Actual or Potential Aggression (MAPA®) physical interventions, and in addition to providing training direct to staff, licenses professionals to become MAPA® trainers in the workplace. MAPA® is a nationally recognized and trusted curricular that is fully accredited by the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) under its Physical Interventions Accreditation Scheme.
