September SIVA 2-day Orientation


SIVA 2 day Training - September 15 & 16

SIVA (Supporting Individuals Through Valued Attachments) is a Canadian-created safety management course for mental health professionals, residential care providers, educators and caregivers responsible for individuals with special needs who engage in unsafe behaviours. SIVA’s holistic relationship-based model effectively utilizes collaboration, goal-direction, self-management and healthy empowerment to strengthen relationships and create safety. Thousands of professionals and caregivers have embraced the SIVA model as their training program of choice. SIVA has been described as “a refreshing alternative to crisis focused programs.” SIVA is recognized by the Canadian Accreditation Council and agencies who have completed C.A.R.F. (Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) accreditation have received an exemplary designation for their use of the SIVA program.
During the 2-Day Training Course participants will receive guided instruction and hands-on experience in learning the hallmark philosophy, guiding principles and applied modules of the SIVA Program.

All participants must maintain audio and video presence throughout the training to receive full certification.

The following are the core modules of the SIVA Safety Management Program:
  • Self-Care; identify and manage compassion fatigue through self-introspection and support systems
  • Proactive Safety Management Evaluations
  • Development of Collaborative WISE Plans
  • Development of Communication Skills that are goal-directed and build upon Collaborative WISE Plans
  • Emergency Safety Interventions for those situations that present an imminent risk of harm to self or others
  • Post interventions Management through environmental safety, debriefing and incident report writing
All registered participants will be confirmed 3 x times per day to ensure attendance. All participants must also complete a final questionnaire at the end of the second day to receive a certificate of completion. Substitution of participants must be formally requested and approved by SIVA Training Ltd. to receive certification.

The following are new requirements for participating in the September 15 & 16 2020 training.

Option 1

1.) To complete the Emergency Safety Interventions component of our training in the morning of the second day you will be required to engage in the physical emergency safety interventions with another person. The person does not have to be enrolled in the course, the assistant only needs to be an available person that is willing to assist you in practicing the instructed interventions. This section of the course takes approximately 1.5 to 2hrs. If your assistant is not a known member of your household we request that you follow the COVID 19 standards / precautions of your province or state for close contact interaction. This includes but is not limited to 1) wearing a mask and gloves, 2) ensuring the person has no flu like symptoms (temperature check) and that they have not travelled recently or been exposed to someone with COVID 19 in the past 14days.

If your employment requires that you be in close contact with clients that may require the use of emergency safety interventions such as a direct care worker or similar, the aforementioned precautions will already be included in your job description and company policy.

Option 2

2.) If you do not have a secondary person to assist you with the emergency safety interventions or you do not want to participate in close contact emergency safety interventions or that your employment does not require that you have the emergency safety interventions component at this time (eg. closed schools), we have the following option:

               a) You can complete that two day training in its entirety with the exception of the 1.5 to 2hr component on Emergency Safety Interventions. You will still receive a certificate of completion less this section. We will also offer a free training opportunity in September to complete the Emergency Safety Interventions component of the program provided that you have a physical assistant at that time. In such case that the September follow up training date does not fit with your schedule an alternative date can be made upon request.

SIVA has proven to be more cost effective as well as in line with Provincial standards and State standards. Numerous agencies have already made the transition from other systems and have embraced the SIVA model as their training program of choice.
