Toolkit for Increasing Self-Determination Through Advance Crisis Management in Inpatient & Community Settings

This toolkit contains two Advance Crisis Management (ACM) tools. The manual addresses how to design and implement an ACM program; how to create and use ACM plans each day; common concerns of staff and patients in ACM programs; and evaluating ACM plans and procedures. The videotape demonstrates how to conduct a Crisis-De-Escalation Training. Descriptive handouts are included. An article containing the results of the Toolkit's evaluation is available for download.

You may order the toolkit from the Self-Determination/Emplowerment page of the Publications list [PDF, 223K]. Orders cannot be taken over the Internet. You will need to print off an order form that can either be faxed or mailed to the Center.
