Main Components of Professional Crisis Management (PCM) Training:
Crisis Prevention – by concentrating on teaching skills and changing the individual's environment, it is possible to prevent those behaviors that can lead to crisis. Staff can decrease the overall number of crisis behaviors that may occur.
Crisis De-escalation – component builds upon the ground-work established during the prevention process. Participants learn strategies for prompting individuals to use the skills they learned during prevention. This enables staff to quickly and safely neutralize an escalating situation before it becomes necessary to physically intervene.
Crisis Intervention – component teaches participants to rapidly stabilize and contain even the most severe crisis behaviors by utilizing painless physical procedures that totally avoid the use of awkward positioning and physical pain. By using these types of painless procedures, the staff preserve the dignity of the individual while maintaining a positive clinical relationship, as well as assisting the individual in regaining control.
Post-Crisis Intervention – component provides participants with the skills necessary to reintegrate the individual into their regular treatment and teaching programs. Participants will learn how to conduct post-crisis analysis which includes ways of improving future interactions in a crisis situation.
