TCI Update:TCI for Families, Edt. 4

 

This update is a two-day program for current TCI certified trainers to learn the content and revisions to the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Families (TCIF) curriculum. TCIF is based on the TCI6 core curriculum but revised for families who are caring for challenging children in their own homes. Edition 4 stresses crisis prevention and de-escalation strategies and the topics presented will include; the effects of trauma on children; preventing crisis by creating a safe and secure environment; emotional competence; negotiating rules and expectations; using consequences; assessing what the child feels, needs, and wants; and developing individual crisis management plans. In addition to reviewing minor revisions in the TCIF curriculum, new techniques and skills to help prevent and de-escalate crises will be demonstrated and then practiced.

Program Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify additions and changes to the revised TCIF materials
