CPI (One Day) Course
(approximately once a month) This is a full (8-hour) day of instruction focusing on management of disruptive, assaultive or out of control behavior. The techniques learned will give individuals the confidence to handle and defuse potentially violent episodes with minimal anxiety and
maximum security. The training will help prevent violence and maintain personal safety. Post-Test is required for Certification.

CPI Full (Two Day) Course
(approximately bi-monthly) This two-day course is divided into two parts: day one (8 hours) is a complete one-day course with certification; day two (5 hours) is the physical restraint piece for those program staff members needing it. Instruction focuses on management of
disruptive, assaultive or out of control behavior. The techniques learned will give individuals the confidence to handle and defuse potentially violent episodes with minimal anxiety and maximum security. The training will help prevent violence and maintain personal safety. Physical/team restraints are taught. Post-Test is required for Certification. If you are an DD employee, you may take the second day only, if you have passed the one-day course within the past three months.

CPI Refresher Course

Upon completion of this 2½ hour workshop, participants will know how to take control of stressful situations before they arise by using a variety of cognitive (thinking/doing) approaches along with a number of intuitive (self-hypnosis, autosuggestion and imagery conditioning) techniques. Students will learn how to disarm that part of the personality that triggers anger, frustration, resentment or any other health threatening response to stressful events. They will also learn how to reframe their view of events so that they become objective challenges rather than destructive distractions. In addition to knowledge about the use of these techniques, participants will take with them a reinforcement tape and a wide array of instructional booklets, self-administered profiles and exercises which
enhance the workshop curriculum.
