This three day training teaches first responders in the evidence-based practice of Crisis Intervention Training (the Memphis Model). This practice prepares first responders, particularly law enforcement personnel to be able to identify an individual in psychiatric crisis and manage the situation in such a way to maintain public safety and find a resolution that results in treatment for the individual versus arrest.
Registrants should be prepared to fully participate from Tuesday through Thursday from 7AM to approximately 3PM. The training involves lecture, discussion, and in vivo role plays involving all involved in the class. Upon completion of the course, registrants will be considered CIT Certified responders.
This training is only open to Manchester Police Department registrants and their colleagues (eg. dispatch, area law enforcement personnel, EMTs, etc). Coffee and light refreshments are served daily. Lunch is on your own.
Diana Falkenbach, PhD, Professor of Psychology from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, New York is the presenter for this training. Diana is a certified CIT Trainer and has worked with the Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester to bring this training to the Manchester Police Department for multiple academies.
