SCM Instructor Certification

5-day Program

The SCM Instructor Certification Training Program is a rigorous, five-day learning experience where participants learn prevention, intervention and after-action strategies that are the core of SCM.  Participants will be exposed to a variety of supportive information and concepts central to providing instruction in SCM.  Participants will receive an Instructor’s Manual that provides a model curriculum for SCM Staff Training.  In addition, participants will be granted access to our Instructor’s Website which contains files to download such as:  slideshows, an Emergency Safety Physical Intervention video, training agendas, case studies, various templates, handouts, sample tests and so much more!  This program certifies successful participants as SCM Instructors for their organization/school.  SCM Instructors are required to attend 2-day SCM Instructor Recertification Training Programs on an annual basis.  Both of these Instructor Programs are offered as public or onsite training programs.

What Will I Learn At This Program?

  • Participants will be able to utilize individual and group assessment to help understand the behaviors and needs of individuals.
  • Participants will be able to identify the phases of crisis events, know where staff should intervene and how to use appropriate and effective intervention strategies.
  • Participants will be able to identify the nature, dynamics and categories of challenging behaviors and how to reduce their frequency.
  • Participants will be able to articulate, create and use the elements of function-based behavior support planning.
  • Participants will be able to identify counter aggressive tendencies and learn how to control them.
  • Participants will learn how to use non-verbal, para verbal and verbal intervention techniques in order to direct behaviors and assist individuals in regaining emotional control.
  • Participants will learn how to promote safety when a situation is critical and emergency safety physical interventions become necessary.  If such an emergency arises, SCM provides an integrated and flexible system of emergency safety interventions, which can be taught in part or in total according to need.  SCM techniques have been medically reviewed, approved and have no pressure on critical body parts.  Participants will learn these various emergency safety physical intervention techniques in order to provide staff with a response capacity to meet the unique differences that exist in real life situations.  In addition, participants will be able to list and define the safety areas associated with monitoring emergency safety physical interventions.
  • Participants will learn proper documentation and post intervention debriefing techniques for individuals/students and staff.
  • Participants will learn the issues organizations must consider when introducing SCM including:  crisis intervention policies, training policies, supervision policies, documentation policies and evaluation policies.
  • Participants will learn how to teach the Safe Crisis Management Program to staff at their organization/school.

Not Sure Yet…4 More Reasons to Attend

  1. Safety!
    Your staff are charged with a care taking responsibility.  As such, they assume the natural role of safeguarding the individuals in their care.  The need for safety requires that all staff must be trained!
  2. The Reality!
    The unfortunate reality of individuals being served today is that they sometimes present volatile and challenging behaviors.  This requires that all staff be trained to deal with these behaviors!
  3. Liability!
    Supreme Court decision Canton v. Harris verifies the affirmative responsibility of organizations to train staff in areas of duty in which they are expected to perform.  This decision clearly establishes the liability organizations face by failing to train their staff.  If intervening with challenging behavior by individuals is a performance duty, then training for that duty is required.  Save yourself and your organization!
  4. Professionalism!
    Professional practice in education and social service care requires the practitioner to operate with skills that are based upon the most contemporary information possible.  SCM is a state-of-the-art intervention program.   It’s comprehensive.   It’s based on proven intervention principles. It’s compatible with professional standards and legal requirements.  It’s continuously updated to reflect changes in the field.  SCM meets the requirement of professionalism!
