CPI Instructors Gather For Curriculum Enhancements

On Wednesday, June 20th, Key’s CPI instructors got together at the Hilton Garden Inn in Worcester, MA.  The purpose of the “summit” was to review Key’s updated 16-Hour Key Behavior Support and CPI Enhanced Training Curriculum that goes into effect on 7/1/18.  The newly-updated 16-hour curriculum has been enhanced to incorporate information on trauma informed care, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and strength-based treatment as they related to behavior support and crisis intervention.  This content has also been woven into the curriculum to include new learning models that will help staff identify various levels of risk behavior and consider more physical intervention options with the goal of providing the most beneficial way to deliver support and intervention services to each client as needed.  

At the meeting, the CPI Instructors were recognized for their commitment to agency-wide crisis intervention training.  Each was presented with a $40 voucher towards the purchase of this year’s selection of Key apparel.  Thank you to ALL the members of Key’s CPI Instructor Training Team!  The Instructors and the length of time they have been providing CPI training are:
