Waterford Country School has just been recognized as the first “TCI Agency”, awarded by the Residential Child Care Project. Our business is very tough and to be recognized on this level by Cornell University is one of the highest honors available. TCI (Therapeutic Crisis Intervention) is practiced by thousands of Agencies on six continents and we stand alone with this honor.
“My sincere congratulations to you, the WCS staff, the children and families, and your Board of Directors for being the first organization to achieve TCI Agency Registration status. The TCI Agency Registration process is designed to formally recognize agencies and schools whose implementation of the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention System (TCI) meets the highest standards. In addition to affirming Waterford Country School’s on-going commitment to best practice and the RCCP’s commitment to ensuring fidelity to the TCI system, the purpose of the registration process is to create a learning relationship and a community of practice to maintain quality care standards and principles. Your agency exemplifies this commitment. Our university-agency relationship with practitioner-based translational research at its heart is a model for the field.”
“Thank you and your organization for all of the contributions you have made to children, families and the field. The Residential Child Care Project has benefited tremendously from our relationship and partnership. We look forward toward many more years of productive and enjoyable collaboration.”
