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.

I just wanted to share about how brilliant Chris Garcia is - not only with his vast knowledge and experience in the field, but his compassion, genuine interest in the people around him(even new students he's just met), and his ability to make training fun and impactful. He's excellent. Thanks Chris!
