Therapeutic Crisis Intervention

Therapeutic Crisis Intervention is a crisis management protocol developed by Cornell University for residential child care facilities. The purpose of the TCI protocol is to provide a crisis prevention and intervention model for residential child care facilities which will assist them in:

  • Preventing crises from occurring
  • De-escalating potential crises
  • Effectively managing acute crisis phases
  • Reducing potential and actual injury to children and staff
  • Learning constructive ways to handle stressful situations
  • Developing a learning circle within the organization

The protocol was developed beginning in 1979 through funding from a grant by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect
