Dr. JC Chambers of Stronghold Counseling is an LSCI trainer (LifeSpace Crisis Intervention) and is available to train in schools or other organizations.
Lifespace Crisis Intervention is designed specifically to help teachers, assistant principals, ea’s, etc. deal with the conflicts and emotional explosions that typically happen in a classroom setting. It is an evidence based model that has 5 different studies written about it. The one most pertinent to our system would be the one written by Carol Dawson in New York City proper District 63, the largest special ed district in the city of New York. She determined that LSCI is more effective than most other interventions being used in their school system in terms of reducing degree of expulsiveness and preempting conflict in the classroom.
This training is approved for 30 NBCC clock / 30 SD NASW contact hours.

Hope Without Hype - Guidance Without Judgement
Stronghold Counseling was founded on a philosophy of non-judgmental counseling. Before healing can happen, open communication must take place in a safe environment free of judgment. Stronghold provides a "judgment-free" zone where individuals and families can honestly open up, often for the first time without any fear of repercussions.
