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.

I really enjoyed this course because of all the hands on training. I am, however, having trouble downloading and printing my certificate and need that for agency. Please help.
