This one-day workshop is designed to help staff working in agencies to better understand the purpose of and the process for developing Individual Crisis Management Plans (ICMPs) and/or Crisis Safety Plans. The topics presented include ICMP goals, analysis of youth’s high-risk behavior, types of aggression (proactive/reactive), physical and medical considerations, strategies for de-escalating high-risk behaviors, trauma history considerations, use of physical restraints, and how to develop an ICMP.

  • differentiate between proactive and reactive aggression and understand the appropriate intervention strategies for each
