ICPN team members have been providing onsite-learning opportunities since inception of the program. In 2015, ICPN launched the Professional Development Initiate to benefit members of the community and provider agencies. Since this time, both members of ICPN as well as outside speakers have offered Professional Development Workshops and Learning Experiences throughout the state of Illinois. All topics are based on observed trends in the field in effort to provide support to staff and community members working with adults and children with challenging behaviors and/or medical difficulties. Goals of this initiative include increasing the education to those who take care of and provide services, providing relevant tools, and attempting to shift the focus of treatment away from crisis, and work towards prevention.
