Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Families (TCIF) is the Cornell University model for families working with kids in crisis situations. All WCS staff are trained in the TCI model and we need our families to use these techniques too! TCIF provides skills and strategies for de-escalating a crisis situation. These tools benefit any interpersonal relationships but are especially useful for kids who have been through trauma and the families trying to help them. If it’s been awhile you need to take this course again to help you be an even better parent. Childcare is available if you RSVP. This class has 7 Monday sessions, you must attend them all.
Are you a relative, parent, foster parent or caregiver….experiencing power struggles, aggressive behavior, tantrums and blowups with the children in your care?
Many behavioral crisis situations can be resolved or prevented with the right skills. TCIF participants will learn to understand the roots of challenging behaviors. They will learn how to assist youth in developing new skills and abilities that replace the need for crisis behaviors.
You must attend all 10 sessions to complete the training. Childcare is available.
