This one-day course is intended for Case Workers, Community Health Workers, ACT Team Members, and anyone who reaches out to consumers in challenging neighborhoods or buildings that may be unsafe for them or the people they serve. From pre-visit preparations to what you say and do while working in the community, NAPPI's awareness, assessment, and response skills will keep you safe. Whether you are driving your own vehicle, approaching and entering the housing unit, or changing a tire in a rural setting, NAPPI has you covered in the safest possible way. We will also teach you skills to properly communicate with your supervisor as well as helpful tips on how to use technology to your advantage.

Attendees receive certification of course completion.
