A Note from NAPPI President, David B. Farrell
We know that you have choices in your search for de-escalation, self-protection, and restraint training. Once you see what makes NAPPI different, we’re certain that you’ll choose the NAPPI training that best suits your personal or organizational needs.
At the core of the NAPPI program is a deep understanding of prevention. NAPPI’s philosophy and approach revolve around the NAPPI Green Scale® conceived by our founder, Kurk Lalemand, who recognized the healing power of teaching clients not only the value of living a balanced and productive life, but how and where to begin.
NAPPI’s Red Behavior Scale®, our Behavioral Assessment Tool, trains your staff to identify the full array of cues and respond appropriately. At the same time, our comprehensive approach never ignores the anxiety-provoking triggers in a person’s life. Your clients will benefit from quality, trauma-informed care. Ultimately, your staff will learn to maintain heightened awareness at work while they build strong relationships and trust with those they serve.
Today, the complexity of de-escalation response has risen to a dangerous level. Consumers and patients suffering from mental health and substance use disorders are on the rise, making it even more important for caregivers to possess the skills to deploy de-escalation tools in a safe and humane manner.
No two organizations are alike; no two incidents are alike. While NAPPI's training modules are designed to meet all of your requirements for high-quality training, NAPPI will work with you to customize a training program that meets the unique needs of your organization. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, flexible, and relevant solutions to help your staff respond confidently to the extraordinary situations they face every day.
We’re here to help you and your team work toward a culture of partnership. That is the NAPPI difference.
