Life Space Crisis Intervention
Advanced reclaiming skills for children and youth involved in self-defeating patterns of behavior.
Life Space Crisis Intervention is a therapeutic strategy for using crisis situations as opportunities to help students learn alternatives to patterns of aggressive, disrespectful, or self-demeaning behavior. LSCI is being successfully used by teachers, counselors, alternative and special educators, mental health and juvenile justice staff, residential child care professionals, administrators, and others who deal directly with youth in conflict in family, school, and community. LSCI blends psycho-dynamic, cognitive, behavioral, and pro-social methods to develop powerful teaching and treatment interventions for our most challenging youth.
The course is a 5-day interactive experiential training including lectures, discussion, videos of actual interventions, role-playing, tutorial sessions, and outside readings and projects. We can bring a trainer to you, or join us at an upcoming training.
Graduate credit in psychology or special education is available through Augustana University.
