Students in crisis, whether angry, manipulative, anxious, fearful or depressed, need skilled and caring adults who can help them disengage from conflict cycles and conduct problems. Traditional crisis intervention relies on de-escalation, restraint, exclusion and zero tolerance to manage volatile behavior. Such methods may establish order, but these interventions alone do not help youth correct their chronic patterns of self-defeating behavior. LSCI focuses on these chronic behavior patterns that often do not respond to traditional behavior management.
