crisis prevention and resolution services (CPRS)

IABA Crisis Prevention & Resolution Services (CPRS) was developed in 2006 as a prevention-strong training and consultation service for agencies contracted with a Regional Center. The aim of CPRS is the significant reduction of Regional Center clients needing hospitalization or institutional placements. CPRS\'s core components include: an orientation to positive practices (agency participation at the 4-Day introductory program), prevention services (assistance to agencies in developing a Periodic Service Review, increasing the density of preferred events for the individuals served, specific case training, etc), crisis resolution services (implementation of a crisis resolution plan, supplemental side-by-side supports, etc) and intensive support (comprehensive functional assessment and multi-element plan development and implementation and transfer of responsibility).
