Instructor Selection

Agencies are strongly encouraged to give careful consideration to the individuals they select to receive instructor certification. Therapeutic Options™ Instructors often play key roles in advancing positive approaches within an agency and supporting an environment of respect and inclusion, so it is critical to select people who can do this well.

See our FAQ for an outline of specific qualities of a Therapeutic Options™ instructor. Please take these guidelines seriously. Teaching this course is demanding, requiring the instructor to lead a group for two full days through a comprehensive crisis intervention and emergency behavior support curriculum. Choosing the right person to teach your staff can enhance your agency’s ability to support people with challenging behavior and complex support needs. Choosing the wrong person may lead to a poor training experience for your staff and reduce their ability to implement the program. Please contact us in advance if you have any questions or would like assistance in identifying instructor candidates.
