Crisis Prevention Institute’s (CPI) Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Training Program:

Our own Moira Wertheimer, Esq., RN, CPHRM, FASHRM is now a Certified Instructor of the Crisis Prevention Institute’s (CPI) Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program. The training program is a safe, non-harmful behavior management system designed to help human service professionals provide the best possible Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM of disruptive, assaultive, and out-of-control individuals – even during their most violent moments. The foundation of the training program is the CPI Crisis Development Model℠ which signifies a series of recognizable behavior levels that individuals may go through during a crisis moment, and the corresponding care provider attitudes/approaches used to de-escalate the behaviors. The training program teaches both verbal de-escalation skills as well as physical intervention and disengagement skills. Moira is authorized to teach all components of the comprehensive training program and can structure programs to meet varying staff training needs. For more information, contact
