A Study of LSCI in a School Setting

This study explores the effects of Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI) training on school personnel and the students they serve. The goal of the study was to evaluate how LSCI was being used by staff and whether interventions reduced school-wide disciplinary referrals. Results showed that LSCI was used frequently by trained school personnel from both special and alternative education and regular education settings. LSCI-trained educators were less likely to use coercive student management strategies, and referrals for common misbehaviors declined. Focus group responses demonstrated improved teacher-student relationships and a proactive approach to addressing student problems. The results suggest that personnel from all departments can benefit from LSCI as a means to improve interactions, reduce coercive discipline methods, and decrease referrals for disciplinary action.
