Therapeutic Crisis Intervention is a crisis management protocol developed by Cornell University for residential child care facilities. The purpose of the TCI protocol is to provide a crisis prevention and intervention model for residential child care facilities which will assist them in:

  • Preventing crises from occurring
  • De-escalating potential crises
  • Effectively managing acute crisis phases
  • Reducing potential and actual injury to children and staff
  • Learning constructive ways to handle stressful situations
  • Developing a learning circle within the organization[1]

The protocol was developed beginning in 1979 through funding from a grant by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect.

A review by the Social Care Institute for Excellence SCIE (KNOWLEDGE REVIEW 22 SUMMARY Working with challenging and disruptive situations in residential child care: Sharing effective practice) found however only two rigorous evaluations of Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) have been conducted, and these presented mixed conclusions as to its effectiveness.
