TCI For Families (TCIF)

One of the most critical skills for families who are caring for children in their homes is to teach children to manage their feelings of frustration, anger and loss in more socially and developmentally appropriate ways. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Families (TCIF) stresses crisis prevention and crisis de-escalation in ways that help children learn to avoid losing control; teach methods to help adults avoid power struggles and enlist a child's cooperation; and to show how a crisis can be an opportunity for the child to learn new coping skills.
