Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI) is an internationally recognised, professional training and certification program.  It offers advanced, interactive therapeutic strategies for turning crisis situations into learning opportunities for children and youth with chronic patterns of self-defeating behaviours.

What LSCI Offers

LSCI views problems or stressful incidents as opportunities for learning, growth, insight, and change. This non-physical 4 day intervention program provides school leaders, classroom teachers and youth or social workers in alternative (future focused) education programs with a roadmap through conflict, using crisis as an opportunity to teach and create positive relationships with youth.


LSCI Training

LSCI is particularly suited to teachers and education staff who have the time and experience to engage in an LSCI interview with a young person who has just had an ‘incident’. It is also suited to anyone who wishes to better understand the self-defeating patterns underlying problem behaviours and learn proactive, consistent strategies to de-escalate crisis situations and promote the development of positive, supportive relationships in schools.

In this program you will learn what to do when a young person:

  • acts out in stress toward unsuspecting helpers, sparking explosive and endless power struggles

  • makes poor decisions based on distorted thought patterns and perceptual errors

  • has the right intentions and motivation but lacks the social skills to be successful

  • is purposefully aggressive and exploits others with little conscience

  • acts in self-damaging ways due to being burdened with shame and inadequacy

  • becomes entangled in destructive peer relationships and is vulnerable to manipulation.
