    **NOTE: This is a five day class: Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM each day.

    The training will be held at Springfield Township Police Department. It is free to law enforcement, corrections and criminal justice professionals. Registration is required.

    The training is facilitated by Paul Hartinger, CIT Coordinator with Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio, a provider of premier quality education and training in behavioral health in our region. 

    Crisis Intervention Team Training is 40-hours of comprehensive training to increase skills in relating to individuals with mental illness. Training emphasizes behavioral health-related topics, access to community-based services, de-escalation tactics, and crisis resolution skills. Training format consists of didactics/lectures, on-site visitation and exposure to several behavioral health facilities, intensive interaction with individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders, and scenario-based de-escalation training. Experience has shown this is a minimum level of training hours. Materials covered are complex. Far beyond simple cognitive retention of the material, the desired learning outcome for this training is the adoption and retention of behavioral changes.
