TRAINING TAILORED TO YOUR SCHOOL OR TREATMENT FACILITY
Many general and special education schools, inpatient psychiatry units, therapeutic group homes, and residential and juvenile detention facilities still rely on discipline programs and models of care that emphasize punitive, consequence-based interventions. Leaders and staff in many of these institutions already know that such programs aren't meeting the needs of the kids they serve, but aren't sure what to do instead.
Dr. Greene's approach has been implemented in countless schools and treatment facilities, and the positive outcomes facilitated by this model of care are well-established and empirically supported. In schools, the model has been shown to be an effective means of reducing discipline referrals, detentions, and suspensions. In restrictive therapeutic facilities, the approach has been shown to be highly effective at dramatically reducing or eliminating the use of physical, chemical, and mechanical restraint, locked-door seclusion, staff and resident injuries, and (in juvenile detention facilities) rates of recidivism.
But transforming the institutional culture and discipline or treatment program in schools and treatment facilities is no easy undertaking. Such transformations can be tumultuous, scary, and unsettling for staff, often lay bare pre-existing problems with communication and continuity of care, and therefore require careful thought and strategic planning.
If your facility is new to the approach, we'll take the time to understand your facility and to tailor our consultation services to your specific needs. Our staff has helped many schools and treatment facilities, large and small, make the transition to solving problems collaboratively. If you've already been trying to implement Dr. Greene's model in your facility and need help with any of the various logistical, institutional, and practical issues that can get in the way, CPSInitiative can provide a one-hour "tune-up" consultation to get you back on track. All our consultation services are provided with Dr. Greene's oversight.
