Prevention and Support gives the Direct Support Professional (DSP) tools on how to de-escalate interfering conduct. The DSP will gain knowledge about how to better understand what the person supported may be communicating with their behavior. The student will learn why it’s important to find out the function of a person’s behavior so a new replacement skill can be taught. Finally, if all least intrusive interventions have failed and imminent danger is present, the student will learn how to safely apply an emergency physical intervention technique.

While I have taken this course (or when it was CIT) multiple times over the last two decades, I enjoyed this class immensely. Amanda Godek did a wonderful job in keeping the class fresh, moving along and interesting. She is energetic, engaging and was able to impart the information and techniques to us in an interesting and enjoyable way.

I just took the Prevention and Support Class with Heidi and I loved it! Heidi was very knowledgeable and thorough, she made sure all of us understood each technique before moving ahead. The true reason I enjoyed this class was the element of "Positivism" that Heidi adds to it. She reminds us that technique is only good if it comes with patience, kindness and respect. I will definitely return in three years to see her.

Amanda Godek, was very nice and was very good at what she does. she made it fun for the class, kept us laughing, so i was very pleased, normally i fall asleep and be bored, i had so much fun i wasn't bored or sleepy at all. Training with her was amazing and will be picking her all the time for all my trainings from here on out.

I attended the Prevention and Support class today under Amanda Godek, I was completely impressed from beginning to end. Amanda taught the class very well, in fact I feel she taught better than most teachers/instructors I have sat under. Completely professional and I feel she does teaching because she cares about those that can not defend themselves, it is not just a job, that speaks volumes to the student. I have learned more than the course, She reinforced life values my parents taught me. Not sure If I can request her for Article 9, CPR, Basic First Aid but that would be my request next time I have to renew those courses. I am a Chaplain with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, I have to also attend CPR and Basic First Aid with them, I feel those classes will be dry compared to Amanda's teaching style. I go away being a better man for sitting under her teaching, and feel incredibly blessed for having experienced the class today. By all means retain Amanda as I view her as an asset to your company!!

Thanks Amanda! You are a great instructor and I'm grateful for everything I learned :) This isn't my profession, but as a family member of DDD, I wish that everyone went through your class and learned things from the perspective you teach. Thanks again!

I first went in thinking it was going to be lame and hard with the quiz at the end however the Instructor made it fun, fast, and enjoyable for all of us there. Helped us out with the moves and everything. If anyone had to take this class I would say take it with this instructor, I had a good time.
