LSCI Online Courses

What is LSCI online?

Since 1991, The LSCI Institute has been providing Educators, Counselors, Psychologists, Social Workers, Youth Care Professionals, and Parents with interactive, therapeutic strategies for turning crisis situations into learning opportunities for children and youth with chronic patterns of self-defeating behaviors.

Now, the advanced skills of LSCI are available online! Given the ever-increasing constraints on professionals' time, travel, and continuing education funding, we offer the Introduction to LSCI, LSCI Refresher, and The Angry Smile courses as online trainings. Participants may complete these courses from work or home, on their own schedules, via our video-based modules, presented by LSCI Master Trainers.
