September 25-26: Assisting Individuals in Crisis – A Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) Course

Crisis intervention is NOT psychotherapy. Rather it is a specialized acute emergency behavioral health intervention that requires specialized training. As physical first-aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first-aid.” Crisis interventions are typically done individually (one-on-one) or in groups. This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual intervention.

Course Highlights

  • Psychological crisis and psychological crisis intervention
  • Resistance, resiliency, recovery continuum
  • Critical incident stress management
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Basic crisis communication techniques
