Target Audience: Classroom Teachers
This is a comprehensive course that certifies participants to practice all of the PCM non-physical strategies. Although all PCM levels of certification focus in part on prevention, de-escalation, and post-crisis interventions, this course focuses exclusively on these strategies. All participants will learn to recognize the various stages of a crisis, the triggers which may cause them, and the purpose of the behaviors. Methods for calming students will be shared as well as ways to prompt, preteach, praise, and replace behaviors. This course is the perfect choice for all general educators, special educators as well as administrators in this ever changing climate of education. Learner Objectives: Identify the four stages of crisis; Discuss the cause of crisis behaviors; Determine prevention strategies; Define triggers, prompts, rewards, consequences, and avoidance; Develop de-escalation strategies and post crisis strategies.
