TEACHING Exceptional Children, v42 n5 p6-17 May-Jun 2010
Recent advocacy organization reports, Congressional hearings, and proposed federal legislation have called attention to the abusive use of physical restraint procedures in school settings. As a result, administrators and school officials wonder whether they should purchase "crisis intervention" training for staff and faculty members from outside vendors. Unfortunately, there is limited information available regarding the content of these training programs, and the vendors who provide this training view the subject matter as proprietary and confidential. As a result, it can be difficult for schools to obtain information that might help them make choices about the training they are purchasing. Comparing different programs' emphasis on certain topics, course content, duration, and type of instruction can assist administrators and educators in selecting a crisis intervention training program that is most appropriate for their school.
