TEAM = Together Each Accomplishes More
Wapakoneta: Crisis Intervention is a required CRSI training segment for all new direct support personnel and it continues annually after hire.
TEAM is an approved Crisis Intervention acronym for a technique that teaches staff how to intervene with consumers during a behavioral crisis episode, according to Sue Ulis, program administrator for the Auglaize/Mercer/VanWert region.
Physical techniques are taught to direct support employees to protect the consumer as well as the employee.
