SCSBC in collaboration with Wendy Enns and Abbotsford Christian School, will again be providing annual nonviolent crisis intervention training (CPI) for SCSBC member school staff for the 2016-17 school year. The primary focus of CPI training is on preventing the escalation of behaviour or crises and maintaining the care, welfare, safety and security of everyone in the school. It also includes information about sensory integration and self-regulation strategies that help to prevent disruptive behaviour.
