What program does your facility use to de-escalate/intervene with patients when they become aggressive?
Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI)
folks, y'all help me out here!
I know it's Friday and all...
SAMA Satori Alternatives to Manage Aggression
Thanks for the survey LISA ...we use CPI but good to see what else is out there!
P.C.M. is what we use.
What is PCM?
PCM is an advanced system of crisis management. Unlike other methods that teach intervention techniques only after individuals have become non-compliant, agitated or aggressive, PCM focuses primarily on prevention before a crisis occurs. PCM includes Crisis Prevention, Crisis De-escalation, Crisis Intervention, and Post-Crisis Intervention components. PCM utilizes "hands on" competency-based training and written tests to certify that individuals who receive instruction in PCM reach the highest level of skill acquisition. PCM is the only complete crisis management system available that can guarantee successful prevention and intervention with maximum safety, increased dignity and total effectiveness.
I teach SAMA Satori Alternatives to Managing Aggression
Amy, what kind of facility are you in? do your staff like SAMA?
I’m in an MHMR facility. Our staff likes SAMA, it is a little less harsh than some of the other programs out there and has a lower rate of injury for both the individuals and caregivers. There are 4 parts of SAMA, we only teach the first and second one here at Lakes with the exception of a couple of our facilities. Here is the link to the website. Larry Hampton has a long history with IDD in the state of Texas and developed the course. I am seeing more and more MH/IDD facilities and schools moving from CPI to SAMA. Here is a link to the website. I am happy to answer any other questions that you may have. http://satorilearning.com/
Have a great evening!
OK, thanks, Amy!
I never thought of CPI as being harsh at all. (you didn’t mean that, right?)

Actually I've been told that by a teacher. lol Specifically in terms of the way that you contain an individual (or in students in her case). We had a great discussion about SAMA in one of the Youth Mental Health First Aid classes I taught to educators last week. We literally had to stop and discuss the SAMA "assisting process" that a couple teachers were using during the case study/role play. All the teachers wanted to know where they had learned that and what the program was called.
And I should add - the only people that I know that use CPI are schools... I haven't had the discussion with another facility like ours.
Thanks for all your feedback, Amy.
We are considering changing from NCI after about 15 years and I am wondering what else is out there that people find helpful.
Thanks, y'all! I had never heard of SAMA. Those of you using it; do you like it? what do your staff say?
