Event description

Description


Course Description:

Crisis Intervention is NOT psychotherapy; rather, it is a specialised acute emergency mental health intervention which requires specialised training. As physical first aid is to surgery, crisis intervention is to psychotherapy. Thus, crisis intervention is sometimes called “emotional first aid”. This program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of, and a specific protocol for, individual crisis intervention.

CISM courses are ICISF accredited and designed for anyone in the fields of Healthcare, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Security, Mental Health, Military, Business & Industry Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress.

Program Highlights

  • Psychological crisis and psychological crisis intervention
  • Resistance, resiliency, recovery continuum
  • Critical incident stress management
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Basic crisis communication techniques
  • Common psychological and behavioral crisis reactions
  • Putative and empirically-derived mechanisms
  • SAFER-Revised model
  • Suicide intervention
  • Risks of iatrogenic “harm”
