5-day Live LSCI Training Skokie, IL

June 21, 22, 23, 24, 2016 : 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

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.


The 40-hour workshop carries:

  • *40 clock hours (previously called CPDUs)
  • (*clock hours or CPDUs might vary by state -- this is for Illinois)
  • 27 CEUs (approved by the NASW)
  • 27 hours for NCCs (approved by the NBCC)
  • 27 CPDUs for school psychologists (approved by NASP)

The class will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Niles West High School from June 20-24, 2016. Monday, June 20th , class will run from 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $595, including registration and materials.  


Three semester hours of graduate credit in special education or psychology are offered by Augustana College, Sioux Falls, SD for an additional $300.
