What CPI Certified Instructors Have to Say About 3rd Edition Training
3rd Edition programs weave person-centered and trauma-informed approaches throughout the core content. In particular, on interpreting the brain’s response to threat as one of the causes of distress behavior, identifying the level of risk of the behavior, and identifying preventive strategies to mitigate risk.
The instructional design of the modules is based on adult learning, connecting the knowledge to the experience of the learners so they can more easily use their knowledge and skills in real-life situations. There’s also increased attention on the “why” behind concepts and techniques.
