Crisis Prevention Institute Instructors Carleen Doucet and Mary Landgrave have trained over 2,700 staff members.They have facilitated more than 1,500 hours of training within the Lafayette Parish School System. "The Crisis Prevention Institute will be coming into Lafayette Parish and using some of the situations we teach here for worldwide instruction," says Doucet.

"Every year they come and say oh my gosh I look forward to coming to this training because this is stuff I use. So much has changed in the system in the past 12 years, this has not. This is real life," adds Landgrave.

Real situations that happen in and out of classrooms, offices and hallways. Doucet has worked for the parish school system for 30 years. Landgrave is a social worker of 19 years. "It's nice to be appreciated and we will now be writing policy for Nonviolent Crisis Intervention," says Doucet.

Within the parish school system crisis prevention is an annual training. It falls under the district's Department of Health and Wellness. "We're trying to get to the root as oppose to being a part of the problem," explains Landgrave.

Doucet says the districts first award was in 2006. LPSS selected as a site of excellence for commitment to Crisis Prevention.
