​Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training (NVCI) focuses on prevention by helping deescalate the situation through recognizing the early stages. During the training participants will be presented with skills and will have time in class to practice together. During the training participants will learn how to:​ 

  • Recognize behaviour that may be the beginning of a crisis
  • Respond to different behaviour to deescalate a situation
  • Use verbal and nonverbal communication to resolve a crisis before the situation becomes violent
  • Cope with own fears and anxieties
  • Find the appropriate time to physically intervene
  • Use the progression of a holding technique to help handle aggressive behaviour in the least restrictive and safest approach
  • Properly document the incident


If you need to cancel your registration within eight (8) days or more prior to your scheduled NVCI training we will issue you a full refund. If however, a cancellation is made within seven (7) or fewer days prior to the scheduled NVCI training you will be given credit to attend a future NVIC training provided by the Sheltering Tree. 

For cancellations or questions, please contact: training@shelteringtree.ca

If there are insufficient registered participants, training may be cancelled. We will provide notice 5-7 days before the scheduled training and we will provide a full refund to you.
