Physical Crisis Intervention (Non-violent)
Building upon the aforementioned Verbal Intervention Course, this curriculum teaches participants Non-violent Physical Intervention to successfully escape and evade aggressive attacks such as; punches, kicks, hair pulls, bites, chokes, as well as thrown objects. Additionally, this course teaches how to safely gain physical control of an aggressive person through the utilization of a proprietary passive restraint technique developed by CCG.
Performed by two responders in a supportive, effective, and realistic manner, CCG physical holds maintain safety while still maintaining the dignity of the aggressor, and demonstrating respect for all individuals involved. Utilized as a least-restrictive-control measure meant to stop, contain, and prevent physical harm immediately.
