TCIS UPDATE: Designing Refresher Training
Note: This update is only open to certified TCIS trainers.
This update is designed to assist certified TCIS trainers in designing and implementing effective and school specific TCIS refresher training in order to enhance individual and organization performance. Factors that facilitate skill transfer and maintenance will be discussed. An effective format for representing TCIS materials using the model of “discussion, demonstration, and practice” will be presented. Participants will be asked to present activities appropriate for refresher training during this update. In advance of the update, participants will be asked to bring their activity guides and bring critical incidents (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 interventions strategies, crisis co-regulation, Life Space Interview, physical skills and risk assessment.
Participants will be able to:
- Design refresher TCIS training to meet school specific goals and objectives
- Develop questions to test recall and application of TCIS 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
- Practice physical restraint skills with moderate resistance
Day 1 examines the differences between primary training and refresher training and highlights factors that facilitate skill transfer and maintenance. Participants will learn how to redesign TCIS activities for refresher training and deliver these activities to the training group. The training model of “discussion, demonstration, and practice” and how to use incident reports as a training tool will be presented and practiced. Activities focusing on LSIs, deconstructing crisis events, and physical interventions skills will be presented.
Day 2 continues with participant presentations highlighting self-talk, crisis co-regulation skills, and safety interventions and risk assessment skills. All participants will be tested with written and competency based tests in order to be re-certified.
Participants who successfully complete the update receive the TCIS Designing Refresher Training reference guide and activity guide.
