The goal of the Early Intervention Training Institute (EITI) is to increase the capacity of community-based and educational agencies in identifying children who are at risk for emotional, behavioral, and social challenges by training professionals to effectively assist these children and their families.
The goal of providing these trainings is to do as follows:
- Increase awareness and knowledge of children's healthy social and emotional development.
- Increase skills and competencies in relation to responding to children's early behavioral and emotional problems.
- Increase the ability to appropriately identify and refer children in need of mental health services.
These trainings are being provided to "gatekeepers' in the mental health provider community who have limited expertise in the emerging fields of "0-5" mental health, including: mental health professionals, social service providers, childcare and day care providers, primary care staff, public health nurses, and preschool teachers.

This intermediate EITI training emphasizes understanding effective strategies in working with children who are currently experiencing a crisis situation. This training focuses on de-escalation, client stability, and coping skills. The role of individual differences and thresholds in understanding difficult behaviors is discussed. Participants also learn to identify triggers to minimize difficult behavior and prevent crisis, review meanings underlying disruptive behavior, and implement appropriate behavior management strategies both in home-visiting and classroom settings. Great for Early Head Start staff!!
