TCIF UPDATE: Designing Refresher Training
Note: This update is only open to certified TCIF trainers.
This update is designed to assist certified TCIF trainers in implementing effective and agency specific TCIF refresher training to enhance individual and organization performance. Factors that facilitate skill transfer and maintenance are discussed. An effective format for representing TCIF materials using the model of “discussion, demonstration, and practice” is presented. Participants present activities appropriate for refresher training during this update. In advance of the update, participants are asked to prepare critical incident information (identifying information deleted) for review and use during the practice activities. A heavy emphasis is placed on advancing the skill development of the participants in the areas of the early intervention strategies, I ASSIST, Life Space Interview, and risk assessment.
Participants will be able to:
- Develop refresher training to meet agency specific goals and objectives
- Use questioning techniques to test recall and application of TCIF skills and concepts
- Deliver an activity that advances skills and provides for corrective feedback
- Demonstrate effective training strategies that meet the objectives of refresher training
Day 1 examines the differences between primary training and refresher training and highlights factors that facilitate skill transfer and maintenance. Participants deliver TCIF activities developed for refresher training to the training group. The training model of “discussion, demonstration, and practice”, and the use of critical incident reports as a training tool are presented and practiced.
Day 2 continues with participant presentations highlighting ways to deconstruct a crisis event, I ASSIST, and the crisis cycle. All participants are tested using written and competency based tests in order to apply for re-certification.
Participants who successfully complete the update receive TCIF Designing Refresher Training reference material and an activity guide.
