Most of us will never encounter ONE event that creates PTSD in our lives. However, First Responders can encounter critical, traumatic events on a DAILY basis. Yet, mental health conversations and support can be taboo in their culture.
Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systemic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, the Group Crisis Intervention Course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions, specifically demobilization, defusings and CISD. The need for appropriate follow-up services and referrals when necessary will also be discussed.
This course is designed for anyone in the fields of Disaster Response, Emergency Services, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, and Traumatic Stress.
