Presented by: Jill Pettinger OPWDD Assistant Deputy Commissioner Perry Samowitz YAI Senior Director What is PROMOTE?

Positive Relationships Offer More Opportunities To Everyone PROMOTE

PROMOTE: Have well trained staff members who are capable of developing relationships and creating environments that help the individuals we serve lead richer lives. PROMOTE: Is intended to reduce the likelihood of challenging behaviors by providing staff with tools to help people maximize positive interactions and support and develop functional relationships, environments, communication and respect. PROMOTE

Staff will learn skills to increase an individuals self-confidence, connections to others and opportunities for recreation and relaxation. Staff will be provided with the tools to effectively intervene with people who are presenting with challenging behaviors but who are not placing themselves or others at immediate risk of harm. PROMOTE Will provide staff with necessary skills to avoid behavioral crises through the use of positive

behavior supports. If there is an immediate health and safety risk, staff will be trained to competently respond to behavioral crises, including those in which a physical intervention technique may be necessary. WHY SWITCH FROM SCIP-R TO PROMOTE? TO INCREASE PERSON CENTEREDNESS SCIP-R

Group Activity/Role Playing Standardization/Consistency Training from Videos Review in Game Format Assessed by Role Play & Test 2 Levels of Certification Training Recipients of the PROMOTE Program All DSPs, Clinical staff, and Residential or Program Supervisors are to be trained in PROMOTE at the level corresponding to the

needs of the individuals they support Training Recipients of the PROMOTE Program There will be a 1 day PROMOTE orientation for staff who do not require training and certification in level 1 or 2. All staff with direct service responsibilities, clinicians, and their supervisors who support individuals with some level of challenging behaviors will be trained and certified in at least PROMOTE Level 1 and are expected to maintain current certification with yearly refreshers.

Based upon individuals support needs, staff, clinicians and supervisors may also be trained and certified in PROMOTE Level 2, as well as trained in additional Specialized and/or Restrictive interventions. Levels of Staff Training Level 1 Includes primary tools to best support a person to lead a richer life and to help defuse a potentially dangerous situation. Secondary protective techniques are taught such as protective blocking, bite release, hair pull stabilizations/releases, etc. Level 2 Includes how to best support a person who is

rapidly losing control or dangerous to others. Also how to repair and restore the situation so all involved are supported. Secondary protective techniques are taught such as standing wraps, removals, etc. Length of Time for Each Level Level 1 3 days Level 2 2 days (builds on Level 1) *Additional techniques including Restrictive Physical Interventions and Specialized Physical Interventions require additional training time. Restrictive Physical Interventions may only be

taught to Level 2 certified staff. Current SCIP-R Certified Staff Most currently certified SCIP-R staff will be required to receive PROMOTE BRIDGE training to either Level 1 or 2, as required. The PROMOTE BRIDGE training is currently under development, and the length of time has yet to be determined. Certification of Competency Completion of a written test with at least 80%

correct. Demonstration of competency with 100% correct in the use of Primary and Secondary (Physical) intervention techniques (tools) that correspond to the Level of Certification trained. Hierarchy of Trainers Master Trainers Instructor-Trainers Instructors

Instructors All Master and Instructor/Trainers must be certified in level 2 + restrictive Instructors can be certified in: just level 1 or level 1 & 2 but not restrictive or level 1 & 2 and restrictive PROMOTE Instructor Training

All Master Trainers, Instructor Trainers and Instructors must attend the PROMOTE Instructor Training (PIT) course up to the level they will be teaching. Included are the restrictive techniques for those instructors that will teach them. Following the PIT course, they will need to coteach with a certified Master or Instructor Trainer. Psychologists and ABSSs Will play key roles in the development and implementation of a persons program plan.

Are encouraged to become PROMOTE instructors. Are responsible for monitoring the use of Secondary Tools and making recommendations for reducing their use. Three PROMOTE Zones Green Yellow Red The Life Line

Green Zone A person in the green zone is typically: Having a good day Is on top and is safe Might be having some of the normal stresses in life, but is able to effectively cope Is most receptive to learning and life enriching experiences Yellow Zone A person who has entered the yellow zone:

Is experiencing increased levels of stress and is having trouble coping May be showing Caution Signs May be in danger of losing emotional or behavioral control May need help and/or emotional support (Primary Tools) from others to return to the Green Zone I rritants Supports

certified, they will begin to offer certification training sessions for additional Instructor Candidates, as well as Supervisors and Psychologists (November 2012 through April 2013) PROMOTE Rollout Strategy for State Operated Programs April 2013 through September 2014 deliver PROMOTE Full and Bridge program to all staff required to obtain certification in PROMOTE Certify staff that demonstrate competence in

PROMOTE Level 1 and/or Level 2 Who gets trained to start? OPWDD employed Supervisors and Psychologists will receive PROMOTE Full course (Level 2, five days) These staff will become key mentors and champions of the PROMOTE program as the agency rolls PROMOTE Full and Bridge training out to direct support professionals in their regions Who gets trained to start? OPWDD Supervisors and Psychologists who

require the PROMOTE Full training include: TTLs DA 1s, 2s, and 3s DDSCTA 2s

Psychologist 1s and 2s Psych Assistant 3s Licensed Psychologists Staff in other titles as determined appropriate by Leadership Total Statewide N= approximately 2,500+ Who gets trained next? OPWDD employed Direct Support Professionals and other relevant staff/clinicians If staff are already certified in SCIP-R they take the PROMOTE Bridge; if not they take PROMOTE

training at the appropriate level of certification (1 or 2, plus Specialized and/or Restrictive if applicable) PROMOTE Rollout for Voluntary Agencies Agencies are developing their Trainers simultaneously with OPWDD Trainers Workgroup of Voluntary Agency providers has been formed and is meeting regularly They will use PROMOTE full and Bridge trainings

similar to DDSOOs Timeline will be slower What is our goal? To identify and reinforce optimal practice and performance How? By identifying and using tools and resources to prioritize and achieve significant restraint reduction (i.e., RIA data, tracking staff injuries, admin leave, abuse allegations related to restraint use, etc.)

Reinforcing systems and practices that are already working
