||This course is designed to provide the student (concurrently working a block placement, four days per week, in a residential treatment setting) with a working knowledge of crisis prevention and intervention techniques. The identification and understanding of escalating behaviour levels is paramount for the child and youth worker to be able to provide an appropriate response to young people exhibiting anxious, defensive, or physically acting out behaviour. The course will significantly focus upon the potential causes of aggressive behaviour, preventive and diffusion methods, personal safety measures, as well as the direct utilization of physical intervention and the follow-up counselling process. The current Ministry guidelines for the use of physical intervention will be examined. The model for this course is from the Crisis Prevention Institute (C.P.I.) which is one of the four Ministry approved programs.
Minimum 'C' Grade, Pre-requisite CYW-107 and CYWP-110.
